The Glass Academy is a private, modern-day studio in Dearborn. Co-creators and founders Michelle Plucinsky and Chris Nordin share the love of glass art and traditional glass blowing methods with the community thru various art projects, installations and seasonal events. Formally trained at College for Creative Studies, Alfred University, Pilchuck, Penland and Haystack, Nordin and Plucinsky have over 60 years of combined glass experience. During the day, the hot shop team manufactures glass items designed by the founding artists to sell in the studio’s 4,000 sq. ft. gallery. In the special project area, the founding artists can be found working on large scale, site specific sculptures commissioned for hospitals, hotels and public corporations across the U.S.
