It’s Amazing To Just Watch!

DORIAN ORDOYNE – Artist

Dorian discovered her passion for creativity at a very young age realizing that artistic expression brought her immense amounts of joy. She spent most of her childhood exploring many different mediums such as: dancing, painting, drawing, and pottery. Her passion for glass began in her hometown of New Orleans where she saw glassblowing for the very first time at the New Orleans Glassmaking and Printing Company.  In 2014, Dorian started an apprenticeship at Hollywood Hot Glass under the tutelage of Master Gaffer Brenna Baker Brown which deepened her love for the art.  Spending countless hours, Dorian has been able to hone her own skills and continue growing as an artist.

Dorian is very excited about her newest adventure and accepting the position of Resident Artist and Head Director of Howe Glassworks Studio at Howe Caverns in Howes Cave, NY. Dorian will use all of her training and knowledge to bring the amazing art of glassblowing to the Capital District and share her love of the art with our guests.
