Steven M. Maslach founded his glass studio in 1971. A major contemporary glass artist, Maslach’s work is highly valued and sought after. Well respected in the art glass community, he has served on the Boards of the American Craft Council and the Glass Art Society. Maslach’s artwork is distinctive and expresses elegance in form and richness in color. Inventive and ever-changing, the work may combine blown and cast glass, steel, copper and stone. Color may be a fluid color inclusion, or the reflected purity of dichroic color filters. He developed the use of dichroic glass in the decorative arts in the late 1970’s. Maslach’s work is found in many museums including the Corning Museum of Glass, the Smithsonian Institute and the American Craft Museum. He has been commissioned by the White House, and was the Grand Prize winner in the 1988 international goblet competition “A Glass for Wine” sponsored by Baccarat Crystal and Taittinger Champagne. From 1989-1993 his work was included in a European tour of “Craft Today USA” which opened in Paris at the Louvre, Musee des Arts et Decoratifs, and traveled to many cities including Milan, Berlin, Prague, Moscow, Stockholm and Zurich.
