This month: Licha Ochoa Nicholson and Sam Stang @ 2pm
Raised in a traditionally large Mexican family in Kansas City, Missouri, Licha Ochoa Nicholson began working with glass in early 1980. She studied at the legendary Pilchuck Glass School in Seattle, where she learned the challenging technique of glass-fusing. She continues to explore the unlimited potential and natural beauty of fused glass art.
Sam Stang attended Washington University in St. Louis and was a student of Fritz Dreisbach at Penland School of Crafts in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina and of Lino Tagliapietra at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Maine. He was a founding partner in Ibex Glass Studio and started Augusta Glass Studio in Missouri, which he still operates. He uses traditional European glassblowing techniques to create his stunning pieces.
