Idea Furnace

Idea Furnace

We seek to work with non-glass artists to realize their ideas. Call it a collaboration—one that leads to amazing creative alliances and truly inspired works. Frequently, PGC invites non-glass artists into the studio to discuss their design ideas, learn about the glassmaking process, and watch their design come to life. Our exchange regularly leads to mutual learning opportunities.

Idea Furnace is free, and design sessions are typically a 3-hour studio session with a glass artist.

To apply, submit the following:

  • Three jpeg images of your artwork (glass art not required)
  • Brief explanation and sketch of your concept

For more information, please contact Jason Forck or call 412-365-2145 x203. 

Funding for Idea Furnace is provided in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
