I received a BFA from Cleveland Institute of Art. I won the Ohio Regents Scholarship and did my MFA at Kent State University. I have been experimenting with new painting techniques. I just wanted to express emotion in a colorful fluid way. This new body of work is much looser than I have ever worked.
Bob Pozarski is a short, thick old man with green eyes. After graduating from KSU in 1975, he opened a stained glass shop near Akron U. He’s made art glass for the area for forty four years. Always learning new glass making techniques, he makes kiln cast and fused glass, hand beveled and blown glass. He teaches beginning and advanced glass blowing. Sun, Rain, and Gardens For my display at the Mustard Seed Cafe I’ve made new windows featuring our weather blessings that make the vegetables grow.
Sun and rain, earth and water are represented not very realistically. My focus is more on the glass as an art/ craft material; learning ancient techniques and using them in new ways to expand the stained glass vocabulary.
I may take flat pieces of stained glass and fuse them together in a kiln, take that to the hot shop and blow it into a bubble, spin that bubble out into flat glass again, then grind and polish prism edges on it. The leaded panels are a device to hold that piece of shiny glass up to the light. That’s all.
