Dylan’s art often examines the boundaries of human perception. His work challenges the viewer's expectations through the manipulation of light, space, and the optical properties of glass. While influenced by traditional techniques in glass making, he constantly strives to discover novel approaches to exploit the material and create a lens to view the world afresh.
Dylan Martinez is originally from Stillwater, Minnesota. He received his Bachelor’s of Science in broad field science at The University of Wisconsin-River Falls in 2008. In 2017, he received his MFA in glass, at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.
Dylan is now running his own studio in White Salmon, WA in the scenic Columbia River Gorge where he continues to explore and push the boundaries of glass. His artwork has earned several awards of recognition and has been exhibited and collected both nationally and internationally.
