Jim Loewer Philadelphia, PA • Blown Glass

Jim Loewer has an undergraduate degree in painting from the University of California and a teaching degree from the University of South Carolina. He taught school for 4 years before devoting himself full time to glass.

His glass blowing is primarily self taught through a process of trial and error. He focuses on contemporary organic forms influenced by Japanese craft and the American studio glass movement.


His studio is in North Philadelphia in the old Atlas building, which also houses various other artists and craftspeople.

"I’ve tried other career paths. I studied painting, taught art in a juvenile jail, worked on a fishing boat, got a j.d., but I kept returning to glass. I love turning solid glass into a liquid and back again!"

"As a teacher, I try to share this passion with my students and visitors! Rather than doing the work for you, I guide you through the creation process. You will feel safe and empowered on the torch and have a great experience!"


"I love experimenting with new ways of adding color, shaping glass, and pushing the boundaries of size for lampworking. My background in painting is the greatest influences on my work."

"As a maker, I aim to make colorful, playful work that you will want hang in your windows, decorate your house with, drink your whiskey from, and give to your mom."
