Michael had an early love of glass blowing, having been introduced to the art form at an early age. After several years of working with various glass blowers in the California area, Michael was able to open his own hot shop.
Formerly know as Soul Glass, Hopko Art Glass is a small, locally owned business open to the public. We now ship to over 100 established art galleries throughout the United States and Canada.
Michael has long been recognized for his uniquely colored octopus. As his skills increase, so has his portfolio. Quickly gaining in popularity are the Salt Water Fish, such as the Yellow and Blue Fin Tuna, Mahi Mahi and Great White Sharks.
Michael gains his creative energy from his family, friends and many interests. He is driven by the desire to dedicate his life mastering a personal interpretation of nature recreated and preserved in glass.
Michael Hopko continues to aspire to new heights. You can look forward to many more amazing aquatic blown glass art sculptures from this finely skilled artist.
