Artist Bio

Foster Holcombe’s interest in glass began in 1976 with his stained glass studio in  Denver, Colorado.  .Whille attending a summer seminar in enameling techniques at Pilchuck in 1978, Foster became interested in hot glass.  In 1980-81 he studied glassblowing, decorating and technology in Stourbridge, the heart of England’s glass industry.

In 1985, Theda Hansen joined Foster and together they have designed a line of glass uniquely their own.  Between them, Foster and Theda bring you more than 65years experience.

Todd Hansen joined the studio in 1999, Bruce Ferguson in 2000 and Josh Ries in 2003.  Each brings his own individual and collaborative style to Art of Fire while assisting with production and instructing glassblowing classes.  They also assist with classes at Corning Glass Studio in New York.
