John Krizan is an Iowa artist living in Coralville. Recently, a passion was sparked and nurtured for the elegant art of hot glassblowing. John finds inspiration in both the natural and industrial environments around him, and channels these influences into his exquisite glass pieces.
John’s innate curiosity and hands-on desire to understand and respond to the world around him lies in the heart of his creative drive; conveying his musings from his brain, to his hands and into the piece.
John produces and promotes his own work through his website, Etsy, and at local shows and sales. His next goal: build a mobile hot glass unit called Satellite Glassworks. With his mobile unit, he will travel to schools, community events and other venues to showcase the breath-taking process of hot glassblowing.
“John’s handmade glass pendants are beautiful — they make a splendid accent, and in our home they draw more compliments from visitors than anything else in our new kitchen.”

“We are delighted with the five light pendants that John Krizan designed and made for our newly renovated kitchen. He met with us in our home in Iowa City to show us examples of what was possible, and ultimately we settled on a swirl pattern with a color that we chose from an extensive menu. John delivered his work on time, in perfect condition, and he installed the pendants himself on bare fixtures that our remodeler had wired and hung from the ceiling. John’s handmade glass pendants are beautiful — they make a splendid accent, and in our home they draw more compliments from visitors than anything else in our new kitchen.”
