Lisa F. Pelo

"Medium Pumpkin" Blown Glass by Lisa Pelo, $45

Lisa Pelo is an Indiana Artisan that creates unique works of art in blown glass, cast glass, slumped and fused glass and metal sculpture. Originally from Ohio, Pelo has been a resident of Indiana for nearly 20 years. She acquired a BFA specializing in Glass from Bowling Green State University and has been a faculty instructor at the Indianapolis Art Center/Marilyn K. Glick School of Art in Indianapolis for 10 years. During the last few years Lisa has served as the Dept Head and Studio Technician in Glass Studio at the IAC. She recently opened her own studio Hot Blown Glass, Ltd in Clayton Indiana. There she offers private lessons in glass blowing.

Artist Statement: The  beauty of the simple line in sculpture;  glass challenges me to explore this notion and challenges me to achieve. Glass is its own inspiration. There is no other medium like it. The challenge of learning to control it more efficiently, to make more elaborate and complex forms: this is a lifelong project. Color in glass is fascinating. Light has to come in and out of the form through the color to create its own visual interest regardless of the form.  This skill has to be honed and developed over time and often never understood as a significant variable when working with glass by others. What there is about glass-you have to master the medium…glass in motion and be able to tell it what to do. You have to know colors/not just the color wheel but what glass colors are chemically and what they do hot and cold and what colors do to enhance the form and then be able to put them where you want them. Then, make the form, an artistically complete form by knowing those basic rules and then create the final vision. The skill set is always in forward development when creating in glass. Always, glass provides me with a new goal.
