Nate Sheaffer

Instructor

Nate is the father of Glas, a company dedicated to producing quality neon tubing and art. His 30+ years as a neon artist has made him dedicated to bolstering the appreciation, knowledge, and manufacturing of American Neon.

After graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill in the late 80’s, Sheaffer was inspired to begin specializing in installations featuring neon lighting. His distinctive style consists of adding colorful neon wording and designs to found objects, sculptures, and canvases.

“…the goal is to draw awareness to ways we all can be more thoughtful in multi-purpose usefulness of the planet’s natural resources”
