Doughterty Glassworks

Born & raised in California's central Valley, Cameron Dougherty attended California State University, Chico. While earning his degree in Business Information Systems, he took glassblowing as an elective, and never looked back.

In order to pursue his passion for glass, Cameron traveled to North Carolina's distinguished Penland School of Crafts in Fall of 2010. There he completed a two month concentration in hot glass.

By December 2010, he began working for artist Bryon Sutherland in Gridley, CA. While Working with Bryon, Cameron was able to add many skills to my repertoire, as well as receive practical knowledge in the industry.

Cameron relocated to Portland Oregon in 2015 to further pursue my career. There, he worked as a glassblowing instructor at Live Laugh Love Art as well as being a demonstrating artist at Gorge Glasshaus. There he was able to begin to develop his own product lines.

In early 2017 Cameron married his wonderful wife and settled in Vancouver, BC. He is currently the Studio Manager at Terminal City Glass Co-Op in East Vancouver where he also runs his practice and teaches glassblowing courses.

I discovered glass as an art form in college, and was fascinated by the natural duality of the material; a union of science and art. Through my exploration of glass I find myself deeply fascinated by process, investigating traditional methods of making that are at the core of each object. Implementing modern technology with these age-old techniques, I examine simplicity of form in both sculptural and functional works.
