Jarryd Pezzillo is a glass artist working out of Hopewell, New Jersey. He received a BFA in Glass Art from the Rochester Institute of Technology and worked at Wheaton Arts and Cultural Center in Millville, New Jersey. Now, he is running his own glass studio in central New Jersey.
The material qualities of glass inspire Jarryd. Hot glass is an amazing material to work with because you need to listen to what the material wants to do and what you want it to do. It naturally wants to become something beautiful if you guide it correctly.
