Mazet Studios is the combined work and energy of Josh and Eli Mazet, and has grown to include younger brother Tim and mother Tym.
Josh Mazet has been working in art and art education for over ten years. A BFA graduate of the University of Oregon, he was a resident artist in the University’s ceramics department and instructed their Wood-Fire Ceramics program for three years. Josh was first introduced to glass by taking an evening job at a production glass blowing shop. Two years of intense work in production glass blowing refined and developed Josh’s glass blowing skills.
Eli Mazet expressed an interest in learning to work with glass. With Josh, they set up a small lamp working station in the garage, and so began Eli’s journey into glass. He found an outlet for his high energy, and discovered a passion for creating art. Eli’s outgoing personality, work history, and love of glass prompted him to create his whimsical glass creatures. Eli quickly envisioned a family studio and asked Josh to join him in the development of a worked glass business.
Tim Mazet is a dedicated glass artist and primary marble maker at Mazet Studios. He is a master of the precision of vortex and creating the illusion of depth.
