ABOUT DAVID TRAUB
David Traub's career in glass spans over 40 years. Growing up in New York, he trained in ceramics and photography before falling in love with glass in 1973. He spent 10 years in East Texas teaching himself the newly rediscovered craft of studio glass and selling his work in fairs around the USA.
In 1984 he moved to England, first as a student at the Royal College of Art and later as a Masters Degree student at Stourbridge College of Art and Technology, graduating in 1989. During that time he began teaching for several of the polytechnics that were offering glass programs. In 1995 he moved to New Zealand, to Whanganui, as Head of the Whanganui Polytechnic's glass programs. In 2006, after more than 20 years teaching, he again decided to focus on his art and now works from his studio in Whanganui.
David's work has featured in group and solo exhibitions in Europe, America, Brazil, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. His work has been acquired into public and private collections worldwide and has featured in numerous articles and catalogues. He has won a number of awards including the New Zealand Cavalier Bremworth Glass Art Award.
