Artist Spotlight: Robert G. Burch

I’m based between Colorado, North Carolina and New York. My relationship to creativity began with Legos. Skateboarding taught me how to relate to the world through the artistic voices I admired. I was captivated by the excitement of glass work and began apprenticing in a factory setting around age 16. I attended Pilchuck Glass School shortly before making the jump to the mecca of glass working: Seattle, Washington. It was there that I had the honor of working with the renowned artist Martin Blank. In the span of five years, I absorbed many aspects of the art making process, including shipping, metal fabrication, and cold working. Subsequently, our team collaborated on the color design team for Chihuly Inc.

I continue to make and exhibit my work at a high level but as the years roll by, I grew to search for other mediums of expression. I built a tiny house, retrofitted several motorcycles, worked as a LED Tech, print model, built a coffee shop in a gondola and the list goes on. I needed to articulate my ideas more clearly with the help of design, typography, video and technology.

Open to commissions, generally lighting and custom sculptures. Can teach. Always accepting packing material to recycle.
