John Chiles was born in Groton Connecticut in 1962. John grew up in Hawaii, Guam, England, the U.S., and France as the family followed his father’s work for the U.S. Navy.

John first began working with glass in 1980 while a student at Bucks County Community College in Pennsylvania. Classes at Bucks prepared him for an apprenticeship with a local glassblower. From there he started in a production studio where he worked for the next six years as a glassblower and studio manager.

Since 2002 John has maintained both a glass equipment manufacturing business and a glass blowing studio in Orwell, Vermont, where he designs and makes functional glassware and one-of-a-kind pieces
