John Cook has a studio and gallery in Gearhart. His work comprises an imaginative medley of bowls, perfume bottles, and vases, many with silver glass decorations meant to simulate a metal stand. Cook also creates pieces arising from floral motifs. His lamps and other lighting fixtures, including the metal work, are fashioned at his studio.
