About Stanman

Stanman enjoys creating functional art glass from his Portland, Oregon studio in fantastic color combinations and patterns rarely seen in the glass art marketplace.

Stanman has been a tie dye artist for over 30 years. In the mid 1990s he could be found on summer tour with The Grateful Dead selling his tie dyed designs.

He got started working with glass by taking several classes at Bullseye in Portland. After building his glass studio he continued expanding his knowledge and technique by reading several dozen books on the subject.

Stanman worked many long nights with his kilns to create unique patterns in glass. After countless hours experimenting with many different ideas, Stanman rediscovered some old world techniques to make what he calls "Tie Dye Glass".
