John H. Hauberg Fellowship Program

May 15 - 24, 2020

Applications due by 11:59 PM PST on Sunday, December 1, 2019.

Named for Pilchuck co-founder John H. Hauberg (1916–2002)—philanthropist, art collector, and important patron of artists—the fellowship was established to encourage collaboration among a group of outstanding artists.

Groups of up to six members are invited to submit an application to utilize the Pilchuck studios and campus environment for research and development of artwork based on a common theme or a collaborative project.

Group members provide technical support for each other in the exploration of new working methods and engage in critical dialogue. Visual artists in all media as well as writers, poets, art critics, and curators are encouraged to apply; however, if proposing to use glassmaking equipment, some members of the group must have previous experience with Pilchuck’s facilities, as limited technical assistance is available.

Open studio space and access to Pilchuck’s Mold & Kiln Shop, Cold Shop, Print Shop, and Wood & Metals Shop is provided. During this time, Pilchuck’s hot glass facilities are being used for production, and therefore no hot glassworking is available. Hauberg Fellows are provided living accommodations, meals, and limited supplies. Reimbursement for travel costs and honorarium are not provided.

Applications for the 2020 Hauberg Fellowship are due by 11:59 PM on Sunday, December 1, 2019.

For more information, please contact the registrar, at or 360.445.3111 ext.29.



Trace is defined as a mark or indication of the existence of something; a quantity too small to measure; a copy; or a discovery through investigation. Traces of glass can be found throughout the world we live in. Its importance is reflected in its domestic, architectural, scientific, social and artistic uses.

While at Pilchuck, the group plans to explore “trace” through casting, kiln-forming, engraving and other methods of manipulating glass. Arriving at the collaborative "trace" of an installation.  Upon their departure, the 2019 Haubergs will leave behind another "trace" of their own, a self-published book documenting their process.


Both an artist and an emergency room physician, Terri Grant has been creating art for more than 20 years and exploring the medium of glass since 2010. Grant has developed a unique style employing handmade glass threads to create evocative imagery. She has lectured and exhibited internationally and her works have been featured in numerous publications including New Glass Review by the Corning Museum of Glass.


An emeritus Professor of Art at Portland State University, Susan Harlan's work is included in the collections of the The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; the National Gallery of Art and the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, among others. In her work, Harlan creates glass landscapes from layered, abstracted, and condensed two-inch framed fragments and specimens, executing the work in fused-glass paintings.


Based in Berkshire, Purnima Patel’s work includes installations, decorative arts, functional objects, and design elements in collaborative pieces. Patel holds an MA in Ceramics and Glass from the Royal College of Art, London, and teaches kiln-formed glass from her studio. She is often commissioned to create blown forms, cast panels, and site-specific installations.
