In 2004 at the age of eighteen, Gibson started melting glass and hasn’t stopped since. His interest ignited a passion for the malleable creativity that fire and molten glass can express.
On the back of his dad’s property stood a camper van and thus situated Gibson’s first studio. The small space comprised of a makeshift bench sat over the sink and although it left little space for standing, it functioned as an incubator for his initial creations.
Gibson has built many glass workshops since then and has ensured to pass his knowledge along to aspiring glassblowers. In doing so, Gibson has performed public demos, taught private classes and has taken on several students and apprentices. Within the community, he has collaborated with many other talented artists, bouncing ideas off one another to create amazing pieces that reflect both styles.
