David Walters – Glass Workshop
After receiving his BFA in Glass from the Rhode Island School of Design, David Walters moved to Seattle to work for Dale Chihuly, for whom he still works to this day. There, he met Lino Tagliapietra and also began working as his assistant, a role he has had for 17 years that has taken him all over the world and provided the central influence in his life and work. Walters began experimenting with his signature painted enamel on glass technique during a 1995 residency at the Creative Glass Centre of America in Millville, NJ (where he had another residency in 2004), an intricate narrative style that distinguishes his work.
