Video Interview with Steffen Plistermann
Steffen Plistermann, our Spring 2020 scholarship award winner, started in the arts world 25 years ago with painting and sculpture in Seattle. He is now working in Santa Fe and Maui creating distinctive hand blown and sculpted glass. A fascination with organic colors, textures and shapes has finally found the perfect outlet and past experiences allow creative work that transcends the glass medium. Between heat, gravity, and centrifugal force, glass takes on a life of its own and Steffen ends up collaborating with the material, rather than trying to dictate an outcome. Through experimentation, he developed a process using glass powder that when layered, then heated and cooled in specific ways, allows him to create unique, distinctive finishes.
We look forward to following Steffen's success (see plistermannstudio.com).
