Drew Montesano

Drew’s interest and career in glass began with Peggy Karr Glass (Randolph, NJ) where he practiced the art of slumping and fusing glass into beautiful, yet functional glassware. After 2 years, he continued on his quest to explore glass media through creating ornamental beadwork at Fine Line Glass Studio (Breckenridge, CO), under the supervision of Master Glassblower Kerry Feldman. Upon returning to the East Coast his career ambition led to securing an apprenticeship with Master Glassblower Doug Merritt and Stephen Smarr of Vandermark Merritt Glass Studios, Inc. (Branchburg, NJ). While working with Vandermark for 10 years, Drew honed his skills in creating cased floral designs, as well as traditional, colonial reproduction, and art nouveau blown glass.
