Is it with great sadness that we announce the passing of glass artist David Cook. He padave.cook.Face1ssed away rather suddenly Thursday, April 27, 2017, after a short illness.

Beloved husband of Toloria Braswell, Dave Cook was an artist who worked in acrylics, watercolor and glass.  Dave worked with various combinations of painting and glass media for more than 30 years, designing works that combined traditional as well as non-traditional materials and images in innovative ways. Said Dave: “When working with glass, my motivation is to present new images using both traditional and leading-edge techniques to combine wood, stone, metal, feathers and found objects as integrated enhancements to my creations.” Always interested in creative activities, Dave received a BA in Fine Arts from Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD. He was a Studio Artist at the Washington Glass School. Dave was also a member of the Washington Water Color Association, International Arts and Artists, the Prince George’s Artists Association, Black Art in America Association, the Glass Art Society, and the American Craft Council.

  1. So very sad to hear about Dave’s passing. Many years ago, we worked together – wish I had seen his beautiful artwork. He was such a special, loving, kind person and so talented. My heart and prayers go out to Dave’s family. May he rest In Peace. The world has lost a beautiful human being.
