Mark Olson’s extensive education and experience drives the creativity and fabrication of all Unique Art Glass pieces. Mark started working with glass in 1976, going on to work as a research and development product designer for a large stained glass manufacturer for 10 years. Mark attended the prestigious Pilchuck Glass School, studying under Master Glass Artists Dale Chihuly and Ludwig Shaffrafh and was later recruited as a designer for a Seattle area stained glass studio designing and producing commissions for many local area residents.
Mark creates his designs with careful attention to architecture, interior design, and function, often collaborating with architects, designers, and other craftsmen. He strongly believes in the quality of his craft and the honesty of its construction.
In 1989 Mark created Unique Art Glass and continues to produce works for many Northwest homes, churches, and businesses. Mark’s work has been published in trade magazines, brochures and most recently the Greater Puget Sound area magazine Pacific.
