Devin French has made drawing the foundation of his creative practice, from his work in ceramic sculpture to his designs in glass art. While attending the Maryland Institute College of Art and the University of Louisville, he combined his love for illustration with ceramics.  He then worked at Architectural Glass Art at Glassworks for a decade, where he learned technical glass skills.   Over the last 15 years as a studio artist, he has developed unique techniques in drawing with fused glass. Devin currently teaches glass workshops and creates custom architectural glass commissions from coast to coast. 

Devin creates his artwork by meticulously tapping powdered glass onto glass sheets, which are then fused together.  This technique of applying the powder is similar to the one used by Buddhist monks for creating sand mandalas.  Devin’s art and design are created in a spirit of mindfulness, and are made  to be a source of contemplation in people’s lives.
