Peggy Pettigrew Stewart's award winning glass art has been featured in museums, exhibitions and galleries worldwide. Her fascination and unique journey in glass began 16 years ago, after battling cancer. She is one of the few glass artists to create glass using the Verre Eglomise technique. She combines multiple processes & materials to create her unique glass art. She is one of just a few U.S. instructors to teach Verre églomisé glass. Ms. Stewart attended Pilchuck Glass School & Barcelona Spain. She worked as a member of Team Chihuly during installation of his Phoenix AZ exhibit.
Her glass is bent to release prismatic color, and is evident in all of her glass works, ranging from human face-to-glass expressions to individually themed art by kiln forming, kiln casting, sculpting, sandblasting & carving, coloring and use of exotic metals.
Ms. Stewart gives voice to the human spirit through her glass sculpturing of "Heroes of Woodstock" a collection featuring the faces & art of legendary musicians from the Woodstock festival that defined a generation fifty years ago. She continues her decades-long fascination and experimentation with translucence and transparency, with color and light.
