About The Artist

Christopher Jeffries unique style and distinct designs reflect the hand of a dedicated, passionate and master craftsman. Through extensive international education and experience with some of today's most inventive and renowned glass artists, Christopher is able to innovate and execute amazing glass creations for enthusiasts and private collectors internationally.


After graduating from Chico State University with a degree in Fine Art, Christopher continued on to study sculpture and design at Lorenzo De Medici in Florence, Italy. Following his true passion of hand blown glass art, Christopher joined Haystack School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Mane were he studied under Sonja Blomdahl, a specialist of the incalmo technique. To further his knowledge and experience, Christopher soon enrolled at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina to train under Katherine Gray.


Christopher's passion for blowing glass led him to the Czech Republic- a country known for their rich traditions in hand blown glass art. Through an apprenticeship with master glassblower Igor Muller, Christopher gained even more knowledge of the fine techniques and designs that continue to inspire his career as a glass artist. His many invaluable experiences soon earned the recognition of Dale Chihuly, with an apprenticeship at the prestigious Boat House in Seattle, Washington.


Christopher and his wife, Jitka currently live in Laguna Beach in Southern California. Through his company, Jeffries glass, Christopher continues to produce beautifully innovative glass art for galleries, hotels, and businesses throughout the world.


I think of my installations as a snapshot of images expressing past experiences and relationships I have developed throughout my lifetime. The color palette I choose is intended to recapture the mood and feeling nurtured by memorable past events. The texture, a unique sanded finish on the surface, leaves the viewer questioning the very nature of glass.
