Steven Ciezki’s artistic journey is represented by twenty years of drawing and nine years of glassblowing, painting, and photography. He received his BFA in glass at Illinois State University in 2012. Glass has taken Steven to all corners of the country as a student, teacher, and professional glass artist. Teaching opportunities in Arizona ultimately led to the creation of his book Life on the Rails: Intermediate Glassblowing Techniques. The title describes both his nomadic lifestyle as well as the rails at the bench where hot glass is shaped by hand.
