It was only after years of operating this business that he introduced a signature line of work focusing on exploiting the transparency of the glass and how pattern and color work together to create the final visual effect. Years after that Jeffrey dropped the studio name from his work and his one-of-a-kind creations are now signed simply with his name. Exploration of the concept of layering, overlapping of color and pattern working within the context of simple geometric forms has led him to work on diverse projects of all scales and complexity.

His company was founded in 1993 as prescient studios after his return from study in Murano, Italy. At that time he produced glassware and small decorative items with a small team of apprentices. Today Studio Jeffrey P’an is the design house, artist’s workshop and factory in the tradition of the factories in Murano. In addition to his primary focus, which is Jeffrey’s one-of-a-kind sculptural work, all manner of glass related work is performed from jewelry making, cut crystal, glassware and repairs of historical pieces by an expanded team of apprentices and specialists in all aspects of the fabrication and restoration we perform. The studio is open to the public and we welcome visitors to view the glassmaking and browse our large showroom where examples of all of Jeffrey’s work are on display.
