MOSAIC & GLASS ARTIST (PA)
Bill Blazak was born in Lynn, MA and received BS, MS and PhD degrees in genetics from the University of Massachusetts, University of Nebraska and the Ohio State University, respectively. After living and working in California and New York for 9 years, Bill and his family settled in Pennsylvania where Bill worked as an executive scientist in the pharmaceutical industry.
His interest in glass art and mosaics goes back to his early childhood attending a Catholic school with a church having plenty of stained glass windows and mosaic depictions of biblical stories. He is self-taught and has been working with stained glass for more than 20 years, and more recently in mosaics for the past 8 years. His favorite artists are Gaudi, van Gogh, Kandinsky, Klimt and Dali and he often finds artistic stimulation in subjects from nature.
He has traveled extensively, always studying local art in Europe, Turkey, Japan, Southeast Asia, India, Nepal, and Africa. In 2009 Bill retired from the pharma industry and started GlassArts Studio to help promote his work in stained glass, mosaics, and more recently, kiln-formed glass. Bill shows his work locally in the West Chester area at art galleries, gift shops, the Chester County Art Association (CCAA), and also sells his work on the internet.
