Client Feature: Elizabeth Fortunato

Elizabeth Fortunato is a glass artist native to Pittsburgh. She has won prestigious awards for her work in glass including a Bronze Finalist Award in Bullseye Glass Company's 2012 Emerge competition and Emerging Artist in Residency at Pilchuck Glass School.
She is inspired by the passage of time, forgotten and overlooked objects.
I have always been drawn to the old, the rubble, the remains left behind by the tragedy of age.  The Passage of time evokes a sense of loss and separation from one’s self, slowly slipping into the forgotten.  Memories become still, cold, and translucent.  Using found, antique, or inherited objects, I exploit the distance that is created as time passes.

She was recently accepted to and will be attending the prestigious University of Washington MFA program this fall.
