Jonathan Leon first started glassblowing at the age of 17 while working with a scientific glassblower. During an eight year flamework apprenticeship he learned to work with Borosilicate laboratory grade glass, which is the highest quality glass available. It’s so strong that it’s used to insulate the thermal tiles on American space shuttles.

His Lolipop Glass pendants, earrings, bracelets and rings are crafted from borosilicate pyrex which gives each piece an extremely durable finish.

He draws creative inspiration from contemporary arts and crafts, architecture, fashion, design and daily life.

Check out his cool designs at an upcoming Sugarloaf Crafts Festivals.
