Originally from New Jersey, Sarah moved to Pittsburgh in 2015 as a Tech Apprentice and decided to stay for the glass and art community. In 2016 she founded her jewelry business, PetalVision, which incorporates nature and glass into wearable artwork. Beyond her jewelry company, Sarah continues her studio practice as a glass artist with mosaics, mirroring, and experimental techniques.
I started working in stained glass about 30 years ago. After receiving a beautiful pair of earrings, I just wanted to learn how to make stained glass earrings. After making my first suncatcher, I was hooked. I worked primarily in stained glass until I discovered mosaics and then fusing. I have discovered that anything that can be imagined can be made in some form or another in glass!
Ashley McFarland has been working in glass for the past 12 years. She moved to Pittsburgh for the PGC tech apprenticeship in 2009 and has been honing her glassmaking skills ever since. She loves the challenge of repairing broken glass objects and turning non-glass objects into glass through coldworking, casting and hot shop methods.
As a glass artist, I explore what occurs naturally with the material, harnessing heat and flow to encourage the glass to speak for itself while conveying my vision. Currently, I am torn between two passions, one of Pattern and Chaos, the other an exploration of the Formation of Planet Earth. My endeavors are supported by Pittsburgh Glass Center, home for the past 10 years, where I currently serve as the kilnforming and hospitality coordinator.
