Randall Grubb
one of the greatest lampworkers of all time

Randall Grubb (California and Oregon, USA). Randy Grubb began his glass-working career at Correia Glass in Southern California. Like other top flight glass artists, Randall is obviously a genius. He was building Hot Rod racing cars as a teenager and has a degree in Business from the University of Southern California. While working at Correia ontechnical aspects of glass production, he became fascinated by paperweight art and especially by lampwork. He built his own studio and began making lampwork weights in 1986. At some point, he stopped working with glass and returned to work in racecars. His paperweights are loved and admired by sophisticated collectors worldwide as some of the finest ever produced.
