Bud Shriner pursued medicine at the University of Vermont and practiced emergency medicine for fifteen years. His initiation to glass was lampworking Pyrex and quartz in a neuro-chemistry lab. Ten years later, he helped set up a hot glass stuio and began learning glassblowing. After studying at the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, he renovated a downtown Burlington building and opened his own hot glass studio.
