Eric Bailey began his B.F.A. at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and finished his degree in Visual Arts at Oregon State University (OSU) in 2000. In 2001 Eric went to work for a small, nationally-recognized glassblowing business where he learned the art of flameworking. He spent the next seven years designing, creating and producing functional glass art.
In 2007 and 2008 Eric built a glassblowing studio in his backyard (with the help of friends) and established e.b. glassworks. Eric personally designs and creates each piece of unique glass in his studio in Corvallis, Oregon.
In 2005 Eric did a two-week internship with glass master Milon Townsend at his home in upstate New York. In the Fall of 2008 Eric participated in a two-day workshop with master marble artist John Kobuki.
When he's not blowing glass or enjoying his newborn son, Eric spends time with his wife renovating their 1951 ranch-style house; their retro-inspired kitchen renovation was featured in HOME magazine in October of 2008.
