Michael Dupille

Born: 12/3/55, Tacoma, WA
Seattle resident Michael Dupille has worked in art his entire career, as a creator, author
inventor and educator.
Experienced in a variety of media including animation, illustration, print, and textile
design, he continues to challenge himself through invention and innovation. His
introduction to glass began in the early 1970’s at Central Washington University’s
glassblowing program.
Since the late 1980's he has worked extensively with glass, having developed
and refined a technique for 'painting with glass', using crushed glass in combination
kiln fired methods called Fritography. Michael is recognized as a pioneer in the field
of kiln formed glass, especially in the area of mold making and kiln casting.
Many of his working methods and materials have become standards in the industry.
He has done design work for Bullseye Glass, was a guest artist at Uroboros Glass and
instructor at The Camp Colton Glass program, and his creative input is well featured in
Boyce Lundstrom’s foundational books on kiln formed art glass techniques.
His work is highly collectible and his numerous private and public commissions include
projects for the The Field Museum, Chicago, The Washington State Arts Commission,
Oregon State Arts Commission, The Pierce County Arts Commission, The Everett
Cultural Commission, The Seattle Times, The Washington State Bar Association, The
Threshold Foundation and the Seattle Mariners.
