Michael Hopko's background in glass began in 1990 as an art student at Shasta College. He started off in ceramics and fell in love with glass when he started taking the class. After college he worked as an apprentice glass blower with several different glass artist in California.
As an avid fisherman since the age of three, now Michael's passion for fishing has lead him to create a line of glass fish like the ones he's caught for many years.
Since he founded his own glass studio in 1996, Michael has insured that each piece that leaves his studio is carefully hand-crafted with a guarantee of supreme quality and uniqueness. The collection of hand-blown glass sculptures that he has created combine art and craftsmanship and capture the beauty and motion of nature through glass.
