David Hopman's Biography

Artist-glass maker David Hopman returned to Amador County in California's Sierra Foothills after many years in the Francisco
Bay Area.  A graduate in zoology from U.C.Davis he was working at Stanford when he focused his artistic interest on glass.
Several years ago he began studying glass blowing at San Jose State. In 2000 he decided to devote full time to his art.
As a zoologist and a avid scuba diver he is strongly influenced by the natural world.  It inspires the color and patterns he utilizes
in the classic and free form blown shape he creates.  Using a state of the art electric furnace he melts glass batch brought in from
the Netherlands.  He then adds colors that come from as far away as New Zealand.  Working the glass at over 2100 degrees, he
blows and hand shapes the piece to achieve a wide array of forms. Many of the color patterns he has devised depend on
complex and ever variable interactions between the compounds used in the different color stocks.
