Biography from Waddington's:
A native of Vancouver, British Columbia, Jay Macdonell was born in 1968.  It was a chance walk past Robert Held Art Glass in 1992 that lead him to a successful career in the arts.  He started off sweeping the floors at the production studio until he was invited to make glass.  He eventually became the apprentice of Daniel Vargas, receiving step-by-step training in the art of glassblowing.

Macdonell has worked for many Pacific Northwest studios since his apprentice days, for such artists as Laura and Alessandro De Santillana, Xu Bing, and Catherine Chalmers.  He has been a visiting artist at The Royal Danish School of Design and Architecture and the Berengo Studio in Murano, Italy, and co-instructor with Ann Wahlstrom at the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington.  Although he started his career in production pieces, his personal works have recently taken center stage with a great deal of success.

His pieces are part of major corporate and public collections, including Elton John's, Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Foreign Affairs Canada, and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.  He was the recipient of a Canada Council for the Arts for further glass exploration, and his goblet design was chosen by the Washington State Wine Commission for their annual restaurant awards in 2004.  He served as vice-president from 2012 to 2013 of the Glass Association Organization.  Macdonell lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
