David L. Lindsay runs Lindsay Art Glass. He was born and raised in Vallejo, California.
In 1976 he began as an apprentice at Nourot Glass Studio where he became proficient
in all aspects of the complex glass production process from mixing materials and melting them,
from blowing pieces with the red hot result, to finishing them once they cool. His knowlege of
the details of glass production provide a firm working foundation for David's creativity.
David eventually became a partner at Nourot and remained there until 1998 when he and his wife
Ann founded Lindsay Art Glass.
David's designs use a compound layering technique that combines glass murrine,
dichroic glass, and precious metals, and incorporates them in his glasswork. His Beehive paperweights were featured
in the documentary "Alchemy in Light". His Undersea Adventure paperweights (shown on this page) move
the use of compound layering into another more abstract and dramatic realm.
In 1997 David was nominated by his fellow glass artists to serve as a juror for the American Crafts Council.
In 1998 he attended the Pilchuck Glass School, and in 1999 he attended Haystack School of Mountain Crafts.
David frequently creates new designs. His Curved-Stem Goblets were nominated for the 2001 Niche Award. He
created 75 glass pieces for the set of Tim Burton's "Planet of the Apes". He began creating lamps in 2001
and his Indigo lace Lamp was nomimated for the 2002 Niche Award.
David is a member of the Glass Art Society, Arts Benecia, the Paperweight
Collectors Association, and the American Craft Council, and he is an avid golfer.
