Barry Entner was born on November 1, 1959 in Brookline, Massachusetts the youngest of 5 children. Early on in life Barry was interested in sports, but that changed when he attended high school. He became more curious in classical art forms such as painting and sculpture, more specifically with the artists Bosch and Breugal. He also studied the work of Piccaso, Gaugin, Moore, Brancusi and more recently David Smith.
“I became interested in glass sculpture in my senior year at Tulane University, studying under Gene Koss. After graduating, I apprenticed with David Goldhagen and studied glass sculpture at Penland School of Crafts under Stephen Dee Edwards, as well as metal sculpture at Massachusetts College of Art. In 1985 I opened Brimstone Glassworks with glass sculptor Caleb Nichols. In 1997 I opened my own design studio in Rhinebeck, NY where I currently create my work.
