Meet the Maker, Jared Rosenacker, of JFR Glass, a glass artist that lives in Austin, Texas. Having explored the many facets of a material like glass, that knows no limits, Jared is repeatedly drawn back to the simplistic function of a drinking cup.
His collection of tumblers, mixing pitchers, and stirrers boasts not only perfectly functional items, but also led Jared to a line of drinkware that is truly unique and a reflection of his interests and traveling.
Jared completed his Fine Arts degree, from Bowling Green State University in Ohio where he graduated at the top of his class and was awarded the James W. Strong 3-D Studio Achievement Award.
After graduation Jared moved to Seattle Washington where he immersed himself into the rich glass blowing scene, and continued his education periodically at The Penland School of Craft in North Carolina where he was the recipient of numerous scholarships.
Most recently Jared spent 4 years working for the world-renowned Corning Museum of Glass in upstate NY. Through their outreach program, Jared demonstrated and educated his love for glass to guests onboard Celebrity Cruise ships. This experience allowed Jared to visit some 40 countries around the world, which has greatly influenced his artwork.
Jared's collection is designed to last, both physically and aesthetically, and become a familiar and comfortable emblem of home, of warmth, of comfort that we hope will last for generations.
