Inspired by molecular and architectural structures, Minnesota native Andrew Shea first studied the sciences – chemistry, biology, ichthyology – where he learned to look beyond the surface. He transferred this interest to the study of fine arts and glass blowing in the early 1970’s and achieved an MFA in Studio Art from the University of Minnesota in 1973.

Shea transforms his love for geometric shapes and crystalline forms into vessels that are both beautiful and functional. There is a long history of “forging” containers among artisans. This tradition arose from the need for functional artifacts, as well as an inherent desire to collect and store that which is precious – be it ordinary water or exotic perfume.
