Pittsburgh Glass Center continues to support artists by recognizing a new artist each month.
Ashley McFarland graduated from Bowling Green State University with her MA in experimental psychology and an eclectic knowledge of glassworking techniques.
Science and art have always acted as strong, duel forces in her life and provide inspiration that can be seen in many of her past and current projects. The connections and conversations between objects as well as exploratory kilnforming processes have been and continue to be fascinations explored in her work.
Ashley has worked in glass studios in California, Ohio, and started at the Pittsburgh Glass Center as a part of their technician apprenticeship program. She currently works full-time at Pittsburgh Glass Center as their Education and Accessibility Coordinator and teaches classes primarily in glass casting and coldworking.
Her work will be on display at PGC throughout the month of May.
