Artists In Residence

The legacy of the Artist in Residence Program dates back to the beginning of the school. Over the years, hundreds of notable artists from a wide range of artistic disciplines have come to Pilchuck to explore how glass can factor into their practice and visual vocabulary. Artists and collaborative groups are invited for each session and provided with their own artist assistant, who acts as a translator, giving technical guidance and assistance in the studio. Two Craftspersons in Residence (also known as gaffers), skilled glassblowers, help realize projects in hot glass.
