Jonathan Cohn, a native Philadelphian, cultivated his affinity for glass working in 2006 when he began studying glass blowing at “Hot Soup,” a glass blowing studio in Old City, Philadelphia. His passion is a continuous learning experience that started as a hobby-turned-business venture in the last seven years. His creativity and dedication to the arts and to the natural world started in childhood through the nurturing of loving parents, whose appreciation for art and respect for nature propelled his inherent creativity.
Jonathan Cohn Glass began as an Etsy shop in early 2010, selling mostly decorative and functional glass pieces dating back to 2006. With custom orders from Juicy Couture and Instyle magazine came the confidence and success needed to take designs in a more personal and fulfilling direction. Jonathan began to integrate his love for fish and marine life into his glasswork designs. Shortly thereafter, the line “Glass Reefs” was established, in collaboration with an aquarium supply and maintenance company based in Wilmington, DE. Jonathan Cohn Glass looks to grow its business based on its founding principals and mission.
