Drew's interest and career in glass began with Peggy Karr Glass (Randolph, NJ) where he practiced the art of slumping and fusing glass into beautiful, yet functional glassware. After 2 years, he continued on his quest to explore glass media through creating ornamental beadwork at Fine Line Glass Studio (Breckenridge, CO), under the supervision of Master Glassblower Kerry Feldman. Upon returning to the East Coast his career ambition led to securing an apprenticeship with Master Glassblowers Doug Merritt and Stephen Smarr, of Vandermark Merritt Glass Studios, Inc. (Somerville, NJ). While working with Vandermark for 10 years, Drew honed his skills in creating cased floral designs, as well as traditional, colonial reproduction, and art nouveau blown glass.
Drew is currently developing his own line of hand-blown, decorative yet functional art glass. He masterfully creates unique perfume bottles, ring holders, paperweights, vases, bowls, ornaments, sun catchers, wall hangings, and free-form sculpture. His fine craftsmanship and designs are unique one-of-a kind signed art forms, with custom pieces available by request.
