About the Instructor(s)

Susan Taylor Glasgow

Opening a dressmaking shop, Susan Taylor Glasgow owned and operated “On Pins & Needles” from 1984 to1997 in both Iowa City, Iowa and Columbia, Missouri. In 1997 Susan sold her dressmaking shop to pursue her original interest in art, focusing on glass. Utilizing her skills as a seamstress, Susan developed a unique approach to glass, stitching glass components together. Combining this "woman's work" in non-traditional mediums to create complex forms and imagery, Susan explores the dichotomy of women and societal expectations.??Susan Taylor Glasgow has work in the permanent collections of several national and international museums, including the Chrysler Museum, Carnegie, Imagine, USA, and the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung, GE. She is represented by Heller Gallery, NYC, and Habatat Galleries in Royal Oak, MI
