Louis Andrew Schaffer


Raised in Evanston Illinois, graduate of southern Illinois University. After graduating college moved to the west coast to pursue a career as a glass artist. Lived in Seattle for 6 years working/apprenticing under some of the top names in the glass industry. Moved back to Portland in 2007 to start Louis Schaffer designs. 

"I was drawn to off hand glass blowing after seeing a demonstration. The shear difficulty of creating these beautiful colorful masterpieces from a molten medium truly intrigued me."
