Hand-Blown Sculpted Glass by John Pomp
Published on January 3, 2013
John Pomp, founder and principal of John Pomp Studios, is from a small steel town in western Pennsylvania. His father is a carpenter and for many years worked in the steel mills in the area. Being surrounded by fine craftsmanship, he found his way to glassblowing through his art teacher/sculptor and good friend whom he studied with for many years. After being schooled in the venetian art of glassblowing by maestros from murano Italy, Pomp spent most of his early career in NYC where he gained most of his notoriety with his blown glass and lighting.
A move to the city of brotherly love/invention this past year has spawned a new furniture, lighting, and accessories collection created primarily from steel, that was inspired by his personal history and ties to his home town. each piece of furniture and lighting is meticulously crafted by hand in our multi-disciplinary studios in philadelphia.
John Pomp studios work exemplifies the purity of natural materials while embracing their inherent historical and elemental qualities, yielding a simple, classic modern aesthetic.
