Stained Glass Tree
© John Nygren
Green vase with abstract landscape on side.
Nygren earned his MFA in pottery at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI, in 1968 and that same year took a life-changing three-week glassblowing course at Penland School of Craft, where Mark Peiser was the newly appointed and first Resident Craftsman in Glass. A year later he moved to Walnut Cove, NC, and shifted his art practice to glass, building New Branch Glass Studio. His artwork has always reflected his love of nature, landscapes, and animals. The vase pictured is a classic vessel shape with hand-applied outlines for the tree and landscape forms.
