SUSAN TAYLOR GLASGOW
Originally from Duluth, Minnesota, Susan Taylor Glasgow currently resides in Columbia, Missouri. A product of a post-war home with very traditional gender roles, Susan was schooled in all of the tools of domesticity: cooking, cleaning and sewing. Utilizing her skills as a seamstress, Susan developed a unique approach to glass, stitching components together to create complex forms and scenes that borrow from the dramatic dichotomy of gender imagery from the 1950's. Glasgow's work is smart and rife with personal history paired with subtle commentary on cultural expectations. The fragility of her chosen medium, glass, paired against the explorations of femininity results in work that is both alluring and intrepid, witty and seductive.
