About FireMonkey Glass

FireMonkey Glass is the creative glass outpouring

of Marshall Hyde (that's me!). I am a mixed-media artist

working primarily in glass since 1990, exploring a variety

of techniques and processes including: glass blowing, flame

working, engraving, cold working, casting & pate de verre,

kiln forming and vitreography (printing from glass plates).

I have been invited to teach workshops at conferences in the

US and UK, at The Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass,

and to be a teaching assistant (TA) at the Pilchuck Glass

School. I have had the great honor to meet and work with

some of the finest glass artists in the world as a student,

TA and co-instructor, and to call them my friends.

My work ranges in scale from small beads, to sculpture, to

large scale public art projects in the UK, made in collaboration

with British artist Jaqueline Cooley. In 2009, I was a co-

presenters at the Bullseye Conference in Portland, Oregon,

and I was a co-chair of the 39th Annual Glass Arts Society

Conference in Corning, New York, my adopted hometown.

I was married for many years to the wonderful artist, glass maker and educator Caitlin Hyde. Her generosity and creative influence on my work is immeasurable, and I am forever grateful to her. We remain dear friends.


For the last few years I was the executive director of an orchestra in the Corning area, with little time for making my own art in glass or any other medium. As much as I loved the orchestra, I am now re-establishing my studio and plan to make art & glass full time.

I hope you will join me as I embark on my "second act" in a lifetime of art.
