Robin began his career in 1998 at the Columbus College of Art and Design, where he received his Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Glass and Painting. His previous positions include being a studio assistant, woodshop assistant and glassblowing instructor.
Julia's career began in 1996 at Oregon State University, where she studied Fine Art. After finishing her Bachelor's of Fine Arts at Southern Illinois University, Julia began teaching sculpting and glassblowing at Pilchuck Glass School in Washington.
Robin and Julia Rogers first met in western Montana, where their paths crossed teaching glassblowing. After spending time together creating art, the duo decided to open Cloud Cap Glass in 2000, an art studio where they both enjoyed creating and selling their pieces.
Robin then received his Master's of Fine Arts in Glass and New Media from Southern Illinois University in 2008, and Julia received her Master's of Fine Arts from Bowling Green University in 2010.
After 10 years of moving from state to state together, the couple began creating artwork collaboratively. Robin is currently the co-owner of Nomadic Glass, and Julia is an instructor at Tidewater Community College, where she teaches Beginning Glassblowing.
