R Jason Howard is a progressive glass artist who specializes in borosilicate flameworking. He lives in Skaneateles, NY with his wife and children, blowing glass full time and running his production studio, Cicada Glassworks. His current work draws on a unique combination of traditional Italian techniques and self-invented processes to create large, organic, colorful forms that push the boundaries of what flameworked glass can do. Jason first began working with glass in 1997 as a senior studying ceramics at Hamilton College, with glass artist, Robert Palusky. After a two year internship as Hamilton’s ceramic studio technician, and a scholarship to the Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass, he began studying both off-hand glassblowing and flameworking, with renowned artists such as Cesare Toffolo, Emilio Santini, William Gudenrath, Robert Mickelsen, James Nowak, Suellen Fowler, and Loren Stump. Jason has also worked as a technical and artistic consultant for Northstar Glassworks, developing and reformulating colored borosilicate glasses, including the popular color “Onyx.”
