About the Artist
Mark Selleck taught
himself to blow small glass pieces
while a geology graduate student
in 1969. Taking an instant liking
to the medium, he soon began
shaping more complex solid forms.
Twenty-seven years ago he moved
his company, Glass Impressions,
to a 17-acre property outside
of Waxhaw, North Carolina, where
he won commissions to make pieces
for restaurants, other businesses,
and private homeowners
Mark learned early in life that he enjoyed selling things he could make himself. As a teenager, he helped build the pleasure boats his father, a trained marine engineer, designed and built in southeast Florida. But even as a third grader, Mark sold to classmates the small wooden toys he fashioned from scraps in his father’s shop.
"There are so many areas where there is no ‘correct’ way to do something,” Mark says. “People can find ways to create interesting things with an open mind and the freedom to experiment. If you don’t have instruction, and teach yourself, you may find a way to do things that others haven’t thought of.”
