Anna Mlasowsky

WSKG Arts is proud to partner with the Corning Museum of Glass for a series of features showcasing their past resident artists. Growing up, German artist Anna Mlasowsky wanted to be an archeologist. Instead, she focused her curiosity on studying the traditions and habits of glassmaking. “The way we evaluate a material and use its properties is defined by preconceived opinions and boundaries set by traditions,” says Mlasowsky. Her work seeks to challenge preformed behaviors and “raise questions about reality and projection.”

“I am not concerned with craft and technique, I don’t judge things by how they are made, but how they make use of material,” she says.
