Peggy Pettigrew Stewart Master Glass Artist

Peggy Pettigrew Stewart's award-winning glass art featured in museums, exhibitions, and galleries worldwide. Her work shows her fascination and unique journey in glass beginning 21 years ago, after battling cancer and recently (significant brain surgery in 2015).

With a technical background, she has been able to develop new techniques, processes with glass. Her technical knowledge has helped her to create new materials, tools, and equipment. She is one of the early pioneers working with Float glass. She is considered a master at fusing, casting, kiln sculpting, and sand carving. She has studied extensively coldworking, sandblasting, and sand carving in addition to fusing. She combines multiple processes to create her unique glass art. She is one of just a few U.S. instructors to teach the Verre' EglomiseTM glass technique. Ms. Stewart attended the famed Pilchuck International Glass School and Academe' Taller in Spain. She has studied and worked with many masters of glass. She had the honor of working with Team Chihuly during the Dale Chihuly exhibit installation in Phoenix, Arizona. Her work is held in museums and private collections worldwide.

Ms. Stewart's glass work is bent to release prismatic color. It is evident in all her glass works, ranging from human face-to-glass expressions to individually themed bowls formed by kiln forming, kiln casting, sculpting, sandblasting and carving, coloring, and use of exotic metals. Peggy gives voice to the human spirit through her glass sculpturing of "Heroes of Woodstock" TM, a growing collection featuring the faces of great musicians from the Woodstock festival that defined a generation almost half a century past. She continues her decades-long fascination and experimentation with translucence and transparency, color, and light.
