Shawn Messenger

Shawn Messenger's works are inspired by flowers, gardens, and landscapes and are washed with splashes of vibrant color on a 3-dimensional canvas of glass.  Each piece is individually designed and hand-blown, using colored glass powders and chips.  Transparent veils of color float through her creations and echo the graceful simplicity of forms in nature.  Shawn holds a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art, and furthered her study in glass at the Pilchuck Glass Center and The Toledo Museum of Art.  Her works can be found in private collections throughout the US and around the World.
