John Vruwink taught all facets of art for over 30 years at Central College in Pella, Iowa, and is now retired. He received his B.A. from Central College and his M.F.A. from Drake University. He also studied at the Rietvelt Academy in Amsterdam and The Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass in New York. His work has been shown at the Des Moines Art Center, The Museum of Contemporary Crafts in New York City, and the Brunnier Art Museum in Ames in addition to several other venues throughout the Midwest.

John's sculptures are created of the unlikely combination of stone, steel, and glass. The glass component is suspended from or attached to a hunk of limestone, creating a visual balance between the opposing sculptural forms of rough limestone blocks and smooth, curvilinear pieces of blown glass.
