Michael D. Boyd

Michael saw his first glassblowing demonstration at age 10 and was transfixed. He began his study in glass at age 14 and has continued to work in this medium for the past nineteen years. He currently is co-owner of Foci Glass, a large public access studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

His current work uses simple and uncomplicated forms, which act as a canvas for the interplay between color and design. He also incorporates sculptural elements into his vases that often suggest geologic formations. His intent is to move the traditional vase form towards becoming a piece of sculpture. “For me, glass is an art form of limitless possibility yet infinite barriers.”
