discovered glass fusion while attending a pottery studio conference in Phoenix Az. He found that glass made a great addition to his ceramic studio shop. Little did he know at the time of this humble beginning, that the passion for fused glass would become a central focus of his life. The spark that started there grew into a roaring flame and The Long Grass Studio and Workshop was founded. Over the last few years Pat has been exploring, creating and perfecting many different aspects of fused glass art. His passion for design and colour is evident in his work. You might even say he is addicted to the Kiln & it’s rhythmic clicking as it works away generating an atmosphere of comfort and creativity in the studio, while fusing glass art in its belly.
The Long Grass Studio is located in Springbank Alberta. Snuggled between the bustling city of Calgary and the soaring Rocky Mountains, The Long Grass Studio and Workshop is a purpose built, spacious but cozy studio that Pat shares with his wife, Juanita Dawn. Together they create art, teach classes and hold workshops.
