Dylan’s art often examines the boundaries of human perception. His work challenges the viewer's expectations through the manipulation of light, space, and the optical properties of glass. While influenced by traditional techniques in glass making, he constantly strives to discover novel approaches to exploit the material and create a lens to view the world afresh.

Dylan Martinez is from Stillwater, Minnesota. He received his bachelor’s degree in broad field science at The University of Wisconsin-River Falls in 2008. In 2017, he received his MFA in glass, at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.

Dylan recently opened his glass studio in White Salmon, Washington (formerly White Salmon Glassworks) in October 2017. He and his wife live in Hood River, Oregon and enjoy the outdoors.
