Amber Cowan at the San Francisco Museum of Craft and Design

On October 17th, GLANC sponsored the opening reception for Amber Cowan: Second-Life Glass.

Amber Cowan with work

“Amber Cowan combines old glass and new as she sculpts and manipulates her way through her rescued treasures with a pure sensitivity and flawless dexterity. Cowan seduces us with her luscious sculptural installations from beginning to end with a romantic yet decidedly contemporary twist. Her process-driven compositions involve reheating glass discards through flame-working, blowing and hot-sculpting salvaged recycled, up-cycled and second-life glass, much of which is pressed glass from the mid-20th Century.”
