Jon Oakes is a renowned glass artist from Huntington Beach whose work is displayed in over 30 galleries across the country. Although he was trained in ceramics and still creates beautiful raku art, he was attracted to the translucent beauty of glass. The possibilities and variety of art made from molten glass was fascinating and provocative to him and before long, glass became his main focus. Designers commission installations for his elegant chandeliers and groupings of colorful fluted wall plates. All of his wall art is bold and unique. From dazzling floral displays to towers of stacked globes, with the option to be lit from within, Jon Oakes Glass is popular in all of its shapes and sizes.
Jon gathers inspiration from travel, animals and stories. He also enjoys designing his own cane and murine as elements for his glass. "I love to showcase the great beauty of glass --- the brilliance of color and form as the light shines through it is always very exciting to me."
