Throughout his life, David Walker has followed his heart and walked an unconventional path. While in college, this journey led him to the world of glass art. What started as just a job soon blossomed into a life long passion.

As a glass-blowing apprentice, David developed the skill set necessary to master the fluid medium. After earning his degree from the Florida Institute of Technology, he moved to St. Petersburg, Florida and co-founded Zen Glass Studios.

David actively creates new glass work which often reflects his love for the natural world, his love for his children and occasionally a touch of politics instilled from growing up in Washington, DC. David’s work has evolved into an installation scale and along with his Zen Glass team, David has been moving his work more into the public sphere.

Along with glass making, David also actively teaches in the community. David’s classes are open to both public and professionals alike. He has also taught through local institutions such as Eckerd College. Active in the St. Petersburg Chamber’s Leadership St. Pete program and the Warehouse Arts District, David seeks to make the world a beautiful place through both his art and actions.
