While growing up, Evan Chambers spent a lot of time making objects in his parents’ metal, ceramics and stained glass studios. Being in those environments when he was young helped direct him into what he is doing today, and also gave him a philosophy of making that understands the importance of balance between art and craft.
Evan began blowing glass and working with copper at age eighteen at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. During summers in college he traveled to Sonoma County and worked with a glassblower and metalworker Fred Cresswell, who taught Chambers how to make art nouveau glass and how to use and fix tools and machines.
After college, Evan Chambers built his own studio, where he now works with hot lustre glass, copper, bronze and silver.
