Eric Hansen was born into a family of glass makers in northern California, so it was perhaps only natural that he developed an interest in glass. Two of his uncles, Ronald and Robert Hansen, had both made paperweights. He first began to encapsulate his floral designs in 1994. His weights, which he makes in his studio in Texas, are usually script-signed and dated in the basal concavity. Eric Hansen is also an experienced pilot and works for one of the large commercial airlines.
