Joe Mattson, self-taught glass artist, began working in glass in 1976.
Joe demonstrates century-old glass blowing techniques on a daily basis at WheatonArts. In his free time, he likes to experiment with different styles of work. The shapes, forms and patterns he crafts in glass are reminiscent of the nouveau glass from the early 1900s. Mattson’s glass is primarily one-of-a-kind pieces he calls contemporary traditional glass.
Joe has exhibited with the Delaware Museum of Art, Delaware; the Corning Museum of Glass, New York; Smithsonian, Washington D.C.; Newark Museum of Art, New Jersey; and the Museum of American Glass at WheatonArts, Millville, NJ.
