Artist and educator, Nathan Sandberg, is based in Portland, Oregon. After working in the Research & Education department at Bullseye Glass Company for 8 years he started Nathans LLC in 2012 and has established himself as one of the top kiln-glass educators teaching today. 
He is widely credited as a pioneer of the modern Vitrigraph methods which he began to develop at the Bullseye Factory in 2009 and have become an integral part of his practice.
Pre-Pandemic, Nathan could usually be found somewhere on the planet presenting fresh, innovative curriculum at a wide range of studios, schools and art centers. These days, much of the educating happens online.
In 2020 Nathan shared his Flatop Dropout Rings and Dropout Paste with the rest of the glass world making successful dropout vessels widely accessible.
Very recently, OnGrade Studio moved into a larger studio space in the Overlook neighborhood of North Portland. Nathan uses OnGrade Studio as his home base and can be found there relentlessly producing work and developing new curriculum to teach online and in person. He also makes the studio available to local artists and students needing access to glass working tools.
His primary art material is glass although his installations commonly make use of other materials such as wood, metal and concrete. His artwork can be found in private and public collections around the world.
