Adams attended Mass College of Art and Design and apprenticed for many successful artists during his education.  He started his business as soon as he graduated.  It was important to immediately pursue his craft as a profession.  He soon built up a consistent base of stores and galleries that sold his work.  Luke opened his current studio in Norwood MA in 2006 and also offers glass blowing classes and fascinating demonstrations open to the public.
