Jason Howard Marbles For Sale


Jason Howard is an old school glassblower who has been working his craft for many years now, working towards a couple of decades on the torch. When I first started collecting back in 2002, Jason was the first artist I found who was making hollow marbles, and I discovered Chris Rice at it shortly after as well. Jason was one of the pioneers in this hollow style of marble, and while he may have made some solid marbles at some point, all of them that I've ever seen from him have been of this super fun hollow variety. The hollow marbles create a totally different spherical experience, as they are SO light when you pick them up, a very odd and sweet sensation. No doubt they are more fragile than a solid marble, but they are still sturdy enough to be easily handled, and I've never seen one break or anything like that. The hollow style allowed Jason to create some very unique designs that nobody else was doing at the time, and which others like Richard Hollingshead were able to build off of in the future. All of Jason's marbles that I have for sale are from my early collecting days, and I haven't seen new ones from him in the past 7 or 8 years or so, though he is still blowing glass and has moved on to work his primary passion of goblets and other amazingly beautiful blown glass. He has done some incredible goblets over the years (I have an awesome one!), and many other hollow forms as well. These marbles are important and fun pieces of art glass marble history, and are sweet treats to have in the collection!
