About the Artist
Mark became a glass artist after a long career in the printing and graphic arts industry. Changes in texture, color and even form are dependent on the environmental factors affecting glass production. Mark has been able to vary these factors and predict, with a fair amount of accuracy, how glass will react although never knowing with absolute certainty until the piece of glass is complete. His goal is to produce works that reflect his love of color whether it be purely an art piece or a functional piece or perhaps even better a happy marriage of both.
All Roland Glass Studio pieces are conceived and produced in his studio. All glass used is Bullseye Glass from Portland, Oregon.
Mark has shown his glass in multiple galleries in the United States.
