Prior to working toward refining the ancient art of glassblowing, Donald Carlson had contemplated pursuing the field of marketing. Instead, he embarked on a career in 1967 that would change his life when he chose to build himself a small studio at his home and took on the challenge of making glass.
Donald Carlson's glass expertise spans five decades, and his original studio in California was one of the first private studios established in the world. His years of experience and creativity are reflected in his beautifully proportioned work. Donald continues to make every piece himself without the use of molds, and each is signed and registered at his current studio in Oregon.
Internationally known, Carlson art glass is represented in several major glass collections including; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian, and Corning Museum Of Glass. It is hoped you will take pride in adding a piece of Carlson glass to your own collection.
