Jeff Ballard - Lavender Landscape Vessel with inciso carvingJeff started working with glass at the University of Illinois at Champaign/Urbana in the fall of 1996. After receiving his BFA in 2000 Jeff spent six years gaffing and designing work for production studios across the Southwest. Jeff has had the privilege of working and taking classes at Pilchuck Glass School, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and the Pittsburgh Glass Center, studying under notable artists such as Dante Marioni, Chris Taylor, and Davide Salvadore. Jeff’s most recent work combines traditional Italian influence with contemporary style and design. In 2006 Jeff re-located to the Northwest where he spends time creating his own work, and teaching classes at the Eugene Glass School, and the University of Oregon Craft Center. Recently Jeff was announced as a finalist for the 2008 Niche Awards and was asked to be Craftsperson in Residence for the creation of Pilchucks 2008 auction centerpieces. His work can be found in galleries, museums, and private collections throughout the United States.
