Richard Marquis is one of the pioneers of the American studio glass movement. In the early 1970s he was one of the first Americans ever to work in a Venetian glass factory. Since then, Marquis has evolved a personal and unique body of work that collides traditional Venetian approaches with a distinctly modern American sensibility.
