Featured Artist
Dylan Martinez

Dylan Martinez was born in Hudson, Wisconsin. He received his bachelor’s degree in broad field science at The University of Wisconsin-River Falls in 2008. He recieved his MFA, in glass, from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana in May, 2017. Dylan’s work explores the playful and intriguing properties of glass. While inspired by traditional techniques in glass working, Dylan is constantly reexamining those traditions and bringing forth a fresh approach to the material both formally and conceptually. In his most recent work, Dylan is examining the boundaries of human perception. His work challenges the viewer's expectations through the manipulation of light, space, and the optical properties of glass. Dylan was chosen as one of the recipients of the Stanislav Libenský Award 2017, for Glass Excellence in Glass Art. A very prestegous award.
