John Nygren

American, b. 1940
University of Nebraska, B.F.A. (1965), Cranbrook Academy of Art, M.F.A. (1967), Penland School of Crafts
Wilmington College

John Nygren earned his MFA in pottery at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1968 and that same year started blowing glass in a short training at Penland School of Craft. A year later, in 1969, he moved to Walnut Cove, North Carolina and shifted to glass completely, building New Branch Glass Studio. His artwork has always reflected his love of nature and focuses on themes of landscapes and animals, especially frogs. Making frogs, Nygren says, comes organically from working with the glass and allowing it to take the shape it wants.
