Aaron Gross became acquainted with glassblowing while attending the California College of Art, CCAC. He originally set out to become a sculptor/ceramicist, but soon found his true calling to be a glassblower, a devotion and talent which he worked hard to develop. While still in Art school, he worked for the renowned Union Street goblet factory in Oakland, CA. His devotion to glass kept him continually under the tutelage of, and in cooperation with, a long series of glass masters.

Now himself a veteran glassblower, he continues to stretch the boundaries of glass craftsmanship at his own studio, Austin Art Glass, since 2003. Aaron’s work encompasses a wide variety of styles and shapes including Old World techniques and high-tech dichroic compositions. He employs a variety of traditional tools and techniques that have been in use for hundreds of years in glass art. He particularly enjoys creating glass with 12th to 14th century Venetian aspects as well as more modern, contemporary styles.
