About Mark Hall
Mark Hall has worked professionally in glass since 1976, learning the trade through on-the-job training and numerous key workshops. In 1982 he was hired by master glass craftsman Warren Olson, schooled in the German tradition, and focused on fabrication and installation of ecclesiastical stained glass windows. In 1988 he followed the studio artist movement founding Hallmark Art Glass with his wife, Leslie Munchhof, which led to combining forged metal and glass into sculptures beginning in the year 2000. Mark shares knowledge by conducting residencies at public and charter schools, teaching at the Minneapolis non-profit glass facility Foci Minnesota Center for Glass Art, and privately at his studio in Kasota, MN. He continues their business of creating meaningful site-specific commissions, sidewalk sculptures and working with churches preserving stained glass.
