Pittsburgh Glass Center continues to support artists by recognizing a new artist each month.
Zachary Layhew is an artist that lives and works in Pittsburgh PA. He first worked with molten glass in the summer of 2007 in the Pittsburgh Glass Centers “Teen Boot Camp” class. He quickly fell in love with the process of glassblowing and continued taking classes through the Glass Center until his completion of high school in 2010. From 2010-2015 he attended Community College of Allegheny County to obtain two associate degrees in Industrial Design and Art. During the five years he spent in college, Zachary was working at the Pittsburgh Glass Center as a glassblowing instructor. Now out of college, Zachary continues working at the Pittsburgh Glass Center as a studio technician. In his off hours he also teaches workshops, works as an assistant to other professional artists, and creates art work of his own.
His work will be on display at PGC throughout the month of March.
