Artist Michael Rogers

Oh so talented, Michael Rogers takes the simplicity of life and turns it into artwork that is inspirational to many.

I enjoyed hearing his explanation, "Perhaps making art is my way of trying to hold on to the ephemera of daily life. There is something profound in even the slightest and most subtle of human experiences."

I couldn't agree more with his perspective and I admire his creative talent. Here is a look at a few of his pieces that I am obsessing over.

After spending 11 years in Japan where he was head of Aichi University’s Glass Department, artist Michael Rogers returned to the United States where he is now a Professor in the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. Michael’s work can be found in the permanent collections of the Suntory Museum of Art in Japan, First Contemporary Glass Museum in Spain, Museo del Vidrio in Mexico, National Museum in L’viv, Ukraine, and the Corning Museum of Glass in the United States.
