Driven by their traditional and conceptual study of glassblowing and art, Chris Bogle and Shelby Kaye work with handblown and recycled glass.
Chris Bogle is originally from Chandler, AZ and Shelby Kaye is from Oklahoma City, OK. The two both left their hometowns to study art and glass. Chris moved to Tennessee and Shelby moved to New York City.
The two met while studying glass in Washington at Pilchuck Glass School. As the two grew as friends and fellow curious artists their work and paths began to overlap.
Winter of 2014, Chris Bogle graduated from the Appalachian Center for Craft with a degree in Glassblowing, and Shelby Kaye graduated from New York University with a degree in Sculpture. Upon finishing school, Chris left Tennessee and moved out east to work at Wheaton Arts in New Jersey. Shelby Kaye stayed in New York City to work as a teacher’s assistant at Urban Glass. As the two now lived closer, they began collaborating on patterned graphic glasses.
After tiring of the East coast grind, the two decided to pick up and hit the open road.Their adventures on the open road led them all around and somehow always circling back to the Southwest.
The couple now lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico where they have two beautiful children and they plan to continue to grow their lives and business.
