Bandhu Dunham began to teach himself glass art (lampworking) technique in 1975, while still in high school. As an undergraduate at Princeton, he received informal training from the University’s glassblower before completing his apprenticeship under American and European masters at Urban Glass, the Pilchuck Glass School and the Penland School of Crafts. Since 1975 he has been a practitioner of meditation – a subject he considers vital to creative life. Bandhu has been the editor of two small magazines – one devoted to spiritual life and the other devoted to punk culture. He is the author of two books about glass art and regularly teaches workshops at craft schools and private studios around the U.S., and internationally.
