John travelled North America, opening studios and perfecting his technique. He studied at the internationally renowned Pilchuck Glass School in Washington, USA (1974,’75,’77,’96) and the Brierly Hill Glass School, UK (Sept 1987-June ‘88) where he had a show at BC House in London UK. John’s glass is sold throughout Canada and the United States.
