He continued his studies at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), where he later established the glass program and taught for more than a decade.

The exhibition’s stunning indoor pavilion and outdoor garden art space are expected to serve as a major visitor attraction, event destination and revenue generator for the City of Seattle and surrounding businesses.
