Konrad has been working with hot glass since attending Penland School of Craft in 2000. Konrad spent several years perfecting his craft before moving to Northern California where he worked as an assistant glass caster. After completing a degree in mathematics from Humboldt State University, he moved back to his home community of Eastport where he continues his work as an independent artist. In addition to being a master glass caster, Konrad has brought together his love of wood and interest in mathematics in the masterful designs he creates — from Keepsake Boxes to his distinctive sets of coasters. In each creation of Konrad blends his love of natural materials with an appetite to explore be inspired by the natural wonders of the world.
