WSKG Arts is proud to partner with the Corning Museum of Glass for a series of arts shorts featuring their past resident artists. This segment features 2015 artist Helen Tegeler.
Helen is inspired by the transitional properties of plants, and extrapolates upon that in her work. From growth patterns and branching to surface textures and patterns, she feels there are infinite design possibilities when interpreting plants in glass. She loves exploring seeds, and the potential they hold for great change. During her 2015 residency, Tegeler worked to expand her techniques with fused glass powders to replicate the physical and visual textures of seeds, something she very recently began exploring.
She has taught workshops at institutions including Tyler School of Art and the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts, and currently works for the Museum as a team leader and demonstrator on Celebrity Cruise ships.
