Gerry Chodak devoted 40+ years to his first career practicing medicine as a urological surgeon. When not practicing medicine, Gerry has always loved art. In 2006, while lecturing to a group of doctors in Oklahoma, he visited an art gallery, which had the entire museum filled with hand blown glass art created by America’s most famous glass artist Dale Chilhuly. Gerry was so overcome with excitement while viewing a video of Mr. Chilhuly collaborating with other artist from Murano that he felt it was something he had to try himself. He immediately began taking lessons from accomplished artist and his commitment to blowing glass was established. His goal is to excite others by combining vibrant colors with a wide range of shapes to create pieces that are aesthetically pleasing.
