Sasha’s sculpture is inspired from nature’s pollinators, using color, form, and texture to produce and present species, capturing their timeless beauty and relevance on earth. Her work is a combination of blown, hot sculpted, kiln formed, flame worked and cold carved glass techniques. She combines a variety of color and surface applications such as cane, murrine, powder, engraving and garage work. Process is important, with each piece often beginning in the hot shop or kiln, cold worked and engraved, and then returned to the fire to add other elements. Sasha is originally from Western Massachusetts and received her BFA and Art Education degree from Alfred University. She presently lives in Seattle, WA where she works as an artist assistant to Shelley Muzylowski Allen, a teaching artist and warm shop coordinator at Pratt Fine Arts Center, a glass manufacturer, and has a studio she shares with her partner (www.michaelcozzaglass.com).
