Gary Bodker is a New Jersey-born artist and designer working in glass. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design’s prestigious B.F.A. Glass program, Bodker established his own practice as Gary Bodker Designs in Portland, Oregon in 2014. With a high level of technical mastery, he balances his tendency towards minimalism with the use of saturated color, bridging the gap between functional and decorative works. Bodker has been a presenter at Glass Art Society’s Norfolk Conference, a panelist on MadeHere PDX/International Interior Design Association’s Makers Forum, and was featured in Surface Magazine’s 4/20 Gift Guide in 2018.
