After graduating, he made his way to Portland (Oregon, USA) and was hired to be the Production Manager Apprentice at the Bullseye Glass Company. This role allowed him to work in every facet of the Bullseye factory’s glass production areas as well as with any visiting artists who came to work at the factory. In addition, he was also engaged to teach classes and research new glass chemistries and processes. This experience formed the basis of his glass kilnforming knowledge. In 2001 he left Bullseye and started an independent studio.
Studio Ramp LLC, was a custom glass kilnforming fabrication studio that translated artists and architects designs into glass from concept to completion. The studio typically worked on 8-12 client projects at a time over their eight-year history. The studio was also a place where artists made their own artwork as well as a stable platform from which Jeremy could engage with the wider creative community. For Lepisto this included exhibiting his work and lecturing internationally as well as serving on the Board of Directors for the Glass Art Society for over 7 years (with one year as Vice President and two years as their President).
After re-locating to Canberra, Lepisto established an independent glass studio in Queanbeyan (Jeremy Lepisto Projects). With this facility, Lepisto constructs kilnformed works for other people, creates his own work and also works at the School of Art and Design at the Australian National University.
