Born in Seattle, it seems natural that Corey Hubbell would be attracted to glass. He picked up his first blow pipe in 1989 when he began blowing glass at Vines Art Glass Studio. With natural talent and a fascination for the element, he quickly became head glass blower and designer for several years. During this time Corey also worked on special glass projects with leading artists in the Seattle area and worked in Bermuda and Australia. Although Corey's experience covers flame work, cold working and fused glass, his focus remains on blown glass. He opened The Redmond School of Glass in 2003 where he teaches students from beginners to advanced. And as a 2006 Pilchuck graduate, he has further diversified and expanded his knowledge and passion for glass.
