Hugh Salkind
Hugh Salkind

Hugh Salkind, owner of Hugh Glass Studio, followed the traditional path to artistry by apprenticing under the American master Bob Snodgrass, and has been blowing glass since 1990. Salkind specializes in borosilicate glass art and jewelry made in a Venetian style, often referred to as off-mandrel, with intricate patterns in a wide range of colors, shapes, and sizes. Besides running his own studio, Salkind teaches flameworking around the country. He was formerly the flameshop director of the Eugene Glass School (EGS) and was one of the organizers of the EGS Flame-Off. He was also featured in a documentary about flameworking.
