Jesse Luketic received his BFA in Glass from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2013. While still a freshman he was talking to his professor Barbara Stanczak, about what major he had chosen, who told him he needed be a sculptor, working with his hands, and not someone who works with computers all day. Come mid first semester Sophomore year as an Animation major, taking intro to glass as an elective, Jesse quickly realized he indeed enjoyed working with his hands more than with a mouse. He transferred majors the very next semester and the rest was history. Jesse currently resides in Columbus Ohio where he works as a full time glass artist/designer/maker.
