Ed Pennebaker

The garden and woods surrounding his home and the Red Fern Glass studio provide Ed Pennebaker with inspiration for his work where he uses traditional offhand glass blowing techniques to manipulate the fluid qualities and interaction with light that glass provides. “I see no need to replicate nature, but I prefer to interpret and reimagine it.”

Creating all his glass by himself without assistance, Ed focuses on sculptures, chandeliers, and lighting that belong to a contemporary line of the decorative arts. “My latest sculptures include steel, bronze, and/or limestone in combination with glass. These sculptures deal with the natural environment and our relationship to our natural resources. Prairie Grass is indicative of the wind and the way it moves the plants rooted in the layers of earth.”

Ed’s work has been selected for inclusion in the Hsinchu International Glass Art Festival in Taiwan and for the White House Crafts Collection, among others and represented by galleries nationwide.
