Greg was introduced to the medium of glass as part of collaboration between Pilchuck Glass School and Alaska Indian Arts. A group of carvers in Haines were commissioned to make a 24-foot commemorative totem for the school campus. This totem was partially carved in Haines then shipped to the school in Stanwood, Washington. Working with students and glass instructors, the pole was completed and raised on site. Alaska Indian Arts, has a collection of photographs documenting this project at their website. Greg returned to Pilchuck to study kiln casting. He is currently working on pieces combining cast glass, wood and neon.
