William Glass

Bill is a sculptural artist who graduated from Notre Dame (in 1957) with a Master’s of Fine Arts degree focused on sculpture and painting.  He taught for a time at the university level while pursuing a career as product designer, artist, and entrepreneur.
Bill says, “It was when I joined Rookwood Pottery and mastered the potter’s tooling craft that I began to appreciate the full potential of the ceramic arts.”  Studio ceramicts have today replaced factory-style art potteries and have stretched the clay medium to new levels of expression, blurring the lines between craft and fine arts.  
Pablo Picasso became a prolific ceramist and potter in his later years.  He and others, like George Ohr and Peter Voulkos, revolutionized the way ceramic art is perceived today. 
This sculptor prides himself on creating original artwork using nature as his muse.
