Ronnie Phillips attended Centre College in Danville, Kentucky where he began his studies in glass and clay. Drawn to the process and energy of glass, he focused his attention and studied under Stephen Rolfe Powell. After graduating from Centre, he sought to refine his skill level within the craft and began working under Curtiss Brock at the Appalachian Center for Craft in Tennessee. Ronnie has studied and mentored under numerous other leaders in the industry all across the United States, been recognized in national award shows, and in 2015 relocated to Seattle, WA to further promote and develop his blown and sculptural glass work.
