Instructor

Gregg Mesmer was recognized as an Island Treasure in 2015. He and his wife, Diane Bonciolini, both of  Mesolini Glass Studio, moved to Bainbridge Island in 1977 and started their iconic glass studio. They have been working in the art glass industry professionally for decades. Their expertise, however, goes beyond glass cutting to include other types of fabrication, all aspects of creating stained glass art, copper foil, glass fusing, public art, and teaching.

Over the years they have worked on many community Art in Public Places projects such as the Bainbridge Beach Glass Quilt, the Waypoint beach glass project, Rotary Centennial Park, as well as others. Many of their projects include school-age students on Bainbridge and beyond. Gregg has taught for Northwest Art Glass, the Bainbridge Park & Recreation District, and Olympic College.
