About

DexterGlass is the work of Dave Fischer. Most current work combines flameworked and studio blown components to produce unique sculptural pieces.

I currently live in Dexter, Michigan and have a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Engineering from the University of Michigan. I work as a technical manager for an environmental products company. This has allowed me to explore a unique relationship between the arts and the sciences.
