Gifts of Art presents Seascapes: Firenation Art Glass
Matt Paskiet is a native to the Glass City — Toledo, Ohio. He began his study of glassblowing at the Toledo Museum of Art in 1993, and he continued his studies at Pilchuck Glass School in Washington state in 1998 and the Fundacio Centre del Vidre in Barcelona in 2001. He later returned to Toledo and opened Firenation Glass Studio & Gallery in Holland, Ohio in 2002, where he has been blowing glass ever since. His Seascape series featured in this exhibit is composed of individually made Murrini pieces, a Venetian glass technique encased in layers of hot glass.
