My name is Jonathan Oien, I am a glass fusing / slumping artist. I grew up in a smaller town in Minnesota called Red Wing. As a boy I spent many a night at my best friend Aaron's home. In our own adventures being boys, I watched his dad in the background. Cutting glass, putting it in the kiln and seeing what happens. Fast forward to 2018. I was talking to my buddy's dad Mike. He was talking about retiring. I thought to myself, I watched him build a craft from his basement. Making these glass sculptures over the years, refining and creating objects that drew my eye and my spirit. I did not want to see everything Mike has done stop. I was very lucky, I asked if he would take me on as an apprentice. I spent a weekend with Mike and Jody to see if this was a good idea or not. Well the weekends kept happening, Mike kept showing me more and more. I am very honored to have been able to apprentice with Mike. Faster than I thought, the torch has been passed. Now, I am in my basement... Cutting glass and putting it in the kiln and see what happens as my son plays with me in the background. Full Circle Glassworks.
