Beyvan Schantz

I'm drawn to what a material can endure, and the beauty that results in this push. I experiment with different media and how transformative combination can be. My clay work inspires and influences my glass work, which inspires and influences my use of fiber. I use glass for its fragility and simultaneous strength, clay for its flexibility and tactile possibilities, fibers for their binding qualities and all for their colors. The differences and similarities between color processes in different media intrigues and challenges me.

I'm currently living and working in Pittsburgh, PA.
