John DesMeules Glass Artist at Tamarack

We have been a fan of John DesMeules for more than a decade.  He's originally from Hurricane WVa.
He is currently the Glass Artist doing glass demos and also teaching private lessons.  Lessons start at $40.
If you have an interest in glass blowing or learning more about glass making,  you'll want to check out the Tamarack  www.tamarackwv.com  website.

John DesMeules

John DesMeules is one of the few expert glass artists still operating within the state. His combination of hot glass pieces and unique blend of sandblasting techniques renders his work in a class of its own.
John learned the art of sandblasting glass over 25 years ago and added glass blowing and sculpting hot glass over 20 years ago. He has worked with and learned from some of the best known glass experts in the state.
John established his business, Glass Dimensions, in 1993. This business first located in Hurricane, WV before relocating permanently in Eleanor, WV.
