About Header Image


Born in Seattle, Washington, Ryan Staub was originally introduced to glass art at a young age. As he began to develop his craft, he completed studies in political science and modern languages at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. Staub's glass education comes from years of exposure to studio and factory work. He has trained with the world's most renowned glass artists and master glassblowers in the Seattle area and also abroad through his extensive travels. He teaches private glassblowing workshops at studios in Norway and Denmark and previously served as the resident artist at Gler i Bergkvik in Reykjavik, Iceland, Glashuset in Malmo Sweden, and at the Toledo Museum of Art in Toledo Ohio. Staub has provided teaching and training support and translation at two of the most prestigious glass schools in the world, the Scuola Del Vetro Abate Zanetti in Murano, Italy and the Pilchuck Glass School in Washington.

Much of Staub's inspiration and design aesthetic with respect to glass comes from observations that occur during his extensive travels. He has adopted a style that can best be characterized as a unique blend of Modernism, Balance, Juxtaposition and Paradox. A talented artist, Staub incorporates these in such a way as to create forms and pieces that are truly unique and demonstrate the breadth and depth of his technical skills and innovative design.

Staub's work has been included in numerous museum and display collections worldwide.
