Jon Offutt

ARTIST STATEMENT
Jon’s new series of work is a response to his travels. “The bold horizon line of the prairie provides many nuances of light and perspective,” he says, “and the vastness of the sky demands a sensitive depiction of atmosphere. My “Dakota Horizons” work celebrates the topograpy of our surroundings—the evolving seasons, the subtle movement of sweeping grasslands, the shifting character of our sky.”

BIO
Jon Offutt plays with fire. At his glassblowing studio in Fargo—named after the Roman god of fire Mulciber—he uses roaring, 2,000 degree heat as a tool to transform molten glass into beautiful, award-winning glass vessels and sculptures.

Jon earned an M.F.A. in glass from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale, and he passes along his knowledge to new students of glass. He also demonstrates his craft for the public and to a new generation as he travels with his Mobile Studio.
