What is creativity? | JP Canlis | TEDxVail

Struggle, triumph, breakdown, and breakthrough, the creative path is graciously revealed by JP. In designing the set for TEDxVail, he restarted a stalled creative life with courageous vulnerability. He shares the mental and physical process involved in being a glass artist,’Are you a creative? Do you have ‘passion’ for pursuing a life of creativity?

J.P. Canlis first picked up a glassblowing pipe at the age of 16 at Punahou School in Hawaii. He never looked back. After studying glass at Alfred University in NY, Pilchuck Glass School, and creating works for various international glass artists, including being an integral part of Dale Chihuly’s glassblowing team for almost 10 years, J.P. opened Canlis Glass in Seattle in 2005.
