Madeline Shir

Madeline is a glass artist living in Western MA. She creates functional and artistic artworks with flamework, furnace, kiln and coldwork. Her inspirations often come from her homesteading projects. This translates into her glass with imagery, color and light, outdoor installations, and conceptual projects. When not working glass, she may be planting trees or building cob structures, ponds or stonework. These spaces often incorporate glass as decoration, lighting, plant waterers and more! The wide range in her creations makes her excited to experiment with custom requested projects, and work with students who are exploring with this fascinating material. Madeline got her start in glass through the Snow Farm Summer program for high school students!
