Just Another Glassblower - Nathan Purcell
"Nathan Purcell began his lampworking career in Boulder, Colorado in 1998. He moved to Philadelphia to work as an independent glass sculptor in 1999 and developed a strong relationship with the Philly art community. In 2005, Purcell opened Silica Galleries, the first studio/gallery of its kind. In 2006 he exhibited glass and metal bracelets with Philly-based Snyderman-Works Gallery at the Sculptural Objects & Functional Art show in New York. He was also the first ever to bring pipes to SOFA Chicago, 2007. Purcell currently resides in Philadelphia and plans on making glass for the rest of his life."
