Buzz Blodgett has been creating in glass since 1969 when his father built a glass furnace and introduced him to glassblowing. While Buzz was attending college, he worked with his Dad and they began to sell their glasswork. After Buzz graduated, they developed a line of glass wind chimes that were marketed nationally.
In 1978, a Swedish glassblower visited and taught them new styles and techniques. Infused with this new knowledge, new designs began to emerge from the studio along with a large improvement in the quality of the their work. Always an avid surfer living near the beach, Buzz began to develop work with an marine feel to it.
After his father passed away in 1991, Buzz took over the operation of Blodgett Glass. His love for the "art side of glass" has now moved him more towards that market, and he is being represented more and more by galleries and fine art glass stores.
