Matt Kolbrener
Detroit, Michigan

Matt Kolbrener has been honing his glass blowing and sculpting techniques since 2007 by working with and studying under world-class artists and craftspeople. Inspired by the post-industrial landscapes of Detroit, Matt's approach to shaping hot glass has its roots in the imagery of industry. He constructs custom-made steel tools to form and texture the hot glass into shapes that capture Detroit's rich aesthetic history in an industrial, modern, retro style all his own.
