Thorn Ridge Glass

Born and raised in Bethesda, Maryland, Master craftsman Henry Levine has been developing his skill for over 45 years.  As a teenager, Henry enjoyed wheel thrown pottery in his after school pottery classes at Glen Echo Park.

"I was in love with the process and that brought me to thinking about color and form

 I felt a strong need for creative outlet and enrolled in art school to become a production potter.  At Alfred University I found out that people blew glass- who knew? With pottery I was frustrated with being unable to achieve certain color effects consistently. With glass I found that I could overlay opaque and transparent colors in a way that achieved the tonality I was looking for."
