pickSarah Pick

mosaic6_smallFor Sarah Pick, glass is the ultimate medium, with its contrasting interplay between transparency, light, shadows, depth, and movement.  Sarah began experimenting with glass in 2006, first expressing herself through mosaics and stained glass, then adding fused glass to her artistic explorations.

bluestreaks_smallLike any artist in love, Sarah is endlessly fascinated by certain color combinations (and maybe she will never move on from jewel-toned pieces – purples, turquoises, sea foam greens). She is also fascinated by certain techniques including of layering glass and painting with different sized “crumbs” of glass called frit.  Lately, Sarah has been creating three dimensional textured bowls and dishes, and glass paintings designed for window displays.

yellowapples_smallSarah has taken numerous classes at world-class studios in the greater DC area, most notably Vitrum and Weisser Glass. She has also studied at the Bullseye Studio in Mamaroneck, New York.  Sarah’s work has been shown and sold in several galleries in Frederick and Baltimore Maryland, including the Art House in Hampden.  In June 2015, Sarah’s work was displayed at the Creative Crafts Council’s 30th Biennial Exhibition at the Strathmore Mansion in Rockville Maryland.

colorsquares_smallSarah has a marketing and biotechnology background and she works as the marketing director for a scientific research institute. She is also an avid (and frustrated) gardener.  Inspiration does come from the natural world, from scientific images and of course, from abstract designs, too. Sarah has her studio in her home, hidden on five acres in the woods in Highland Maryland with her husband, Steve, and their dog. Their five children are mostly living nearby and they have donated their childhood rooms to glass storage. Sarah hopes that you feel a connection to her work.
