ABOUT STUDIO GLASS

LOCATED IN PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, STUDIO GLASS CARRIES ON THE AMERICAN TRADITION OF SMALL RUN, HANDMADE GLASS DECORATIVE ART.  WE OFFER CONTEMPORARY GLASS ART PRODUCTS FOR THE HOME, BUSINESS AND PUBLIC SPHERES. I SPECIALIZE IN LIGHTING, TABLEWARE, ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS, AND  ORIGINAL ARTWORK.

From the first time I pulled molten glass from a furnace in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I fell in love with glass and its potential as an artistic material. I apprenticed with several artists in the hot shops of Santa Fe, and eventually moved to the eastern U.S. to pursue an arts education. After earning my BFA in Studio Art at Carnegie Mellon University, I started Studio Glass Company in order to showcase and promote my kiln-formed glass designs.

about the process

Powder Printing, like other innovations within the contemporary maker movement, melds older established techniques from other mediums and retools them for new purposes. Powder Printing uses traditional screen printing methods but replaces ink and paper with glass and heat. In this technique, images are produced by pressing dry glass powder through a prepared silk screen onto layers of flat sheet glass, which are then fused together in the kiln at temperatures in excess of 1400 degrees Fahrenheit. Powder Printing affords the glass artist unparalleled image control along with the ability to reproduce the work much in the same way a print maker does.
