Jared Davis


Jared Davis was born in New York City and raised in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado. He has spent the last 15 years working with blown glass, beginning at K Dahl Glass Studios. In 1995, Davis was introduced to Swedish glass masters Jan-Erik Ritzman and Sven Åke Carlsson, who invited Davis to study with them in Transjö, Sweden for two years.

His Swedish apprenticeship ended in July, 1998. Davis then returned to Crawford, Colorado with his family to become an active glass blower and designer for K Dahl Glass Studios. In 2001 Jared started his own business, Davis Glass, with his wife Nicole. They currently create fine art glass to send to galleries all over the world.

When working with blown glass, he is working with a molten material, which follows a viscous path according to where it is hottest and coolest. During his apprenticeship, Davis mastered some of the more difficult shapes by learning to control the glass in its most difficult form. Davis is inspired by the vast beauty that surrounds him in western Colorado. Most of his works contain earthen tones and a combination of sandblasted and high-gloss shine. By using his Fission technique (layering numerous colors) and using a special crackle process, he has created a recognizable design. Each piece is a unique, one-of-a-kind work of art.

Jared and his wife Nicole are well-known for their mouth-blown glass antler chandeliers. Each antler is mouth-blown with hollow glass, and affixed into a beautiful, multi-antler chandelier sculpture. Individual antlers are also available for decor and gifts.
