Jared Davis, now in his mid thirties, was born in New York City and raised in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado. He has spent the last 13 years working with blown glass. In 1995, Davis was introduced to Swedish glass masters, Jan-Erik Ritzman and Sven ke Carlsson, who invited Davis to study with them in Transj, Sweden, for two years. Prior to his trip to Sweden, in the winter of 1996, Davis studied Italian style glass blowing and glass sculpting at The Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle, Washington. In 1998 Davis then returned to Crawford, Colorado with his family to become an active glass blower and designer for K Dahl Glass Studios. In 2001 Jared started his own business, Davis Glass. He currently sends his work to galleries all over the country and focuses solely on his designs. Jareds work is representative of many aspects of the desert southwest; colors, patterns and formations. He says, the fragile grandeur of the desert southwest to me is like an open book, allowing a close up inspection of the forces of creation. Most of the time we are blind to these forces, only in catastrophic events are we privy to the unfolding of our landscape. The desert exposes its self to us so that we can read the events of times past. The work that he presents today is thirteen years worth of sweat, blood and happiness. He hopes it will reveal a little of the beauty by which he is surrounded, in western Colorado.
