My name is Sharif Bey and I am a Pittsburgh-native ceramicist and teaching artist from Beltzhoover on the South Side of Pittsburgh. My studio work ranges from decorative and functional pottery to conceptual ceramic works that are influenced by ritual and African-American identity. My Idea Furnace residency at PGC involved a lot of trial and error, and stretched me and my glass partner to think differently and try new things in order to create the work that is currently on display at PGC in my exhibition, "Sharif Bey: Dialogues in Clay and Glass."

A gift of $125 helps Pittsburgh Glass Center continue to provide the environment and resources necessary for artists to thrive, grow, and create inspiring work to share with the community.

There are three ways to give to Pittsburgh Glass Center:

  1. Donate securely online.
  2. Call us at 412-365-2145 x212.
  3. Mail a donation to Pittsburgh Glass Center, 5472 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15206

GLASS ART: We teach it. We create it. We promote it. We support those who make it.
