Devin Somerville was born in Green Bay, Wisconsin in February of 1976. He moved to Milwaukee in 1994 and attended UWM to study art and architecture. After discovering the specialized process of borosilicate lampworking, he moved to Oregon in 1998 to concentrate on this art form. In January of 2001 he started a shop in Northern California. A year later he decided to bring his unique talent home to create fine hand blown glass for the people of Milwaukee.
As co-owner of Ring of Fire Glassworks, Devin established a business which included a studio and retail gallery with Paul Stephan in January of 2002. In May of 2003, Ring of Fire moved to Walker's Point, just south of downtown Milwaukee. This expanded workspace included a cold work room, 8 lampworking stations, and a gallery.
Ring of Fire closed its doors in December of 2005 and both artists reverted to small home studios. Now in a more private and serene atmosphere, Devin is pursuing lampworking with full force in his many forms of functional and decorative creations.
Devin is currently showing fine glassware in galleries throughout the world, web galleries, and auctions. He also displays his work in a variety of art and trade shows, charity events and festivals. You can also find him teaching classes and workshops at facilities around the globe.
Now a full-time artistic lampworker for over 7 years, Devin Somerville and his finely-honed skill and artistic vision promise exciting and innovative creations in glass for many years to come.
