Filip took numerous art classes in school and upon graduating, traveled Northwest to Eugene, Oregon where his instant attraction to glassblowing was sparked. After extensive torch time and guidance, Filip began to travel while taking classes all over the world. He has since studied with such greats as Robert Mickelson, Kevin O'Grady, and Cesare Toffolo in Murano, Italy.
Applying age-old techniques, fire is used to heat the glass to 2100 degrees Fahrenheit at which point steel, graphite, and wooden tools help to shape the glass. As Filip breathes life into his molten medium, a dance between heating, shaping and patiently waiting ensues. Once complete, each piece is annealed and cold-worked to its final state.
With traditions that have remained the same for generations, Filip designs with unrestrained imagination and crafts with meticulous artistry. Through the ancient manic of glassmaking, Filip strives to capture the essence of the world around us. Exclusively made, his glass creations are unique, each varied by distinctive nuances added for the customers he is working with.
