Susan Taylor Glasgow attended the University of Iowa, graduating with a BFA in Design in 1983.  After working in graphic design for a short period, Susan returned to the sewing skills passed on to her by her mother.  Utilizing her skills as a seamstress, Susan developed a unique approach to glass by stitching glass components together.  Redefining ""woman's work"" in non-traditional mediums, Susan creates complex forms and imagery while exploring the dichotomy of women and societal expectations.  

Susan Taylor Glasgow has work in the permanent collections of several national and international museums, including the Chrysler Museum, Carnegie, Imagine, and Berstrom-Mahler of the United States, and the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung, Germany.  She is represented by Heller Gallery, NYC, and Habatat Galleries in Royal Oak, MI.

Explore and create 3-dimensional forms utilizing Bullseye fusible sheet glass and Susan Taylor Glasgow's unique "Sewn Glass" technique. Individual components are fused, slumped, and then combined by sewing the edges together when cold. You will learn to design and build two 3-dimensional objects during the class with Susan's proprietary techniques.

The first project will introduce you to sizing and fitting pattern pieces to create a 3-D house shape. The second project will include a more complex curved vessel and address the challenges of fitting pattern pieces to a rounded shape, as well as mold building, and firing schedules.

Glass cutting skills are necessary and an enjoyment of building and sewing stuff.
