Jason McDonald is an artist, gardener, and outdoor enthusiast living in Philadelphia, PA. He got his start in glass at the age of 14 through the Hilltop Artists program in his hometown of Tacoma, Washington. A program to which he owes a great deal for exposing him to new possibilities. Jason has spent the majority of his glass career focusing on Venetian technique including Goblet and pattern making. Dissatisfied with being a maker only, Jason returned to school to finish his undergraduate degree at California College of the Arts in Oakland, CA in 2018. Currently he is enrolled as a graduate student in pursuit of an MFA degree at Tyler School of Art and Architecture.
