Adam Goldberg co-owns Gathered Glassblowing Studio. Located in Toledo's Historic Warehouse District, Adam, his family, and his studio partners worked over a year to renovate the space - Ohio's first fireproof building built in the 1890's - into the the gallery and studio that it is today. They teach classes, create a line of studio work, and take on custom commissions.
Adam has been working with glass since 2005, and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Bowling Green State University in 2011. Throughout college, he worked at the Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion teaching workshops, and doing public demonstrations.
Adam has worked for a number of well-known glass artists. In addition to working closely with his teacher and mentor Scott Darlington while in school, to this day Adam continues to work for and assist Canadian artist Laura Donefer, and Venetian Virtuoso Gianni Toso. Most recently Adam created glass pieces for print and installation artist Ina Kaur for her upcoming installations.
Adam received the Stuart R. Givens Fellowship in 2010 and spent two months traveling and working for glass artists throughout Japan's main island of Honshu. There he worked with artists Jin Hongo, Kojima Masaki, Yamano Hiroshi, and Egawano Tomonori. This journey led to Adam being invited to work at Pilchuck Glass School asa Teaching Assistant to artist Omura Shunji in 2011. The Japan experience helped Adam develop his aesthetic in glass. Though he is still - and always will be - refining it.
