By day, Ed Wiley is a corporate data security professional; by night, he plays with fire and molten glass. He started blowing glass in 2011 after buying a Groupon for a five-week glass class. From the first night, he was captivated by working with molten glass, color, and the transformation into finished pieces. Ed enjoys the rigorous process of creating the work just as much as the end result of shiny, delicate glass. He is drawn to bold, vibrant color patterns and elegant free-form shapes. As a craftsman, he appreciates functional work and hopes for his glass to be used and loved in everyday life.
