Tim McFadden

A Baltimore native, Tim McFadden, found his love for blowing glass in 2001 while attending Salisbury University on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. He was introduced to glassblowing by his older brother, Marty, who found the glassblowing courses offered at Salisbury University. His interest in this medium grew quickly. In the Spring of 2005, he won first place and $5,000 through Salisbury University’s Annual Bernstein Business Plan Competition to open a glassblowing studio and qualified for the Fortune Small Business Magazine Student Showdown Competition. Tim McFadden’s business plan gave him a head start to put his plans into immediate action after graduation from Salisbury.

By the fall of 2006, Tim had retrofit a custom glassblowing studio and gallery in an existing property in Southeast Baltimore, Maryland on Eastern Avenue. Tim began teaching local glassblowing courses privately, through Towson University, and the Community College of Baltimore County, while refining his craftsmanship at the same time. Tim’s work is strongly founded on Italian techniques that he has studied and developed at some of the most reputable glass schools in the country, most notably the Corning Museum of Glass and Pilchuck Glass School. His work is sold internationally and has been exhibited in some of the top galleries and museums, most recently the Walters Art Museum here in Baltimore.

Currently, Tim McFadden has created a local hot spot for the Baltimore and surrounding communities. Local glassblowing events have been sure to draw a crowd and build a lively, creative atmosphere for glassblowers and onlookers alike.

Today, you can find Tim in his glassblowing gallery with his wife, Rose and their three young children. McFadden Art Glass truly is a family affair. In fact, if you attend one of their regular public events you will find Mom, Meg, in the Gallery selling glass and Dad, Joe, assisting in the studio and invariably one of Tim’s three other siblings or extended family there to support his success!
