Jesse Kelly has been blowing and sculpting glass for over 20 years. His career began in a Seattle glass production studio, where he developed a mastery of production and design in a fast-paced factory setting. It was in this setting he cultivated a deep love for the medium of glass. Jesse’s training at Pilchuck Glass School coupled with his work on Dale Chihuly and Lino Tagliapietra teams for over 12 years, honed his skills as he began to find his own artistic vision.
In 2004, he founded Jesse Kelly Glass to produce his own work inspired by a lifelong immersion in the lush beauty of the Pacific Northwest. His vibrant botanical designs evoke gracefully sweeping leaves, brightly colored flowers and spiky stalks of bamboo. Suitable for both interior and exterior installation, Jesse’s creations make gorgeous features in homes and landscapes.
