Southwest-Inspired Creations

The Santa Fe Shop in Fish Creek now has glass art by Nicole and Jared Davis on display.

Jared Davis was born in New York City and raised in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado. He has spent the last 17 years working with blown glass. In 1995, Davis was introduced to Swedish glass masters, Jan-Erik Ritzman and Sven إke Carlsson, who invited Davis to study with them in Transjِ, Sweden, for two years.

Prior to his trip to Sweden, in the winter of 1996, Davis studied Italian style glass blowing and glass sculpting at The Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle, Washington.

In 1998 Davis then returned to Crawford, Colorado with his family to become an active glass blower and designer for K Dahl Glass Studios. In 2001 Jared and his wife Nicole started their own business, Davis Glass, and in 2006 they opened the doors of North Rim Glass Studio, LLC.

Jared’s newest designs are a close up inspection of the colors, patterns and formations found in nature. His work is representative of many aspects of the desert southwest – colors, patterns and formations. He says, “The fragile grandeur of the desert southwest to me is like an open book, allowing a close up inspection of the forces of creation.”

The Santa Fe Shop is located at 4147 Main Street in Fish Creek. For more information call 877.868.4300 or visit
