John Krizan is a glass artist currently living in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. While looking to change his career as an automotive technician in 2009 he enrolled in a parks and natural resource program at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. After taking an elective corse in glass, 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 recently traveled to London, Norway, Finland, Sweden, and Denmark visiting many glass studios, glass schools and museums as well as spending  4 weeks in Lauscha, Germany where he was artist in residence at the kulturkollektiv.goetheschule.

John produces and promotes his own work through his website, Etsy, and at local shows and sales.
