Prairie Dog Glass and Native American Glass Artists
A recent article by Cathy Short (Citizen Potawatomi) featured Native glass artists who are active at Prairie Dog Glass in the Jackalope complex. The artists whose work is detailed include Robert “Spooner” Marcus, Ira Lujan, Tony Jojola, Adrian Wall, Ramson Lomatewama, and Carol Lujan.
The article provides a great summary of Native American glass artist activity, past and future. Many of the artists whose work is discussed will be part of the May “Clearly Indigenous” show at the Museum of Indian Arts and Crafts (MIAC).

Where There Is Sand,
There is Glass Art!
Sand. Heat. Vision. Inspiration. Creativity. Artistry. Mix these components in the right proportions, at the right time and place, by the right artisan and the result is glass art that can inspire and engage a viewer’s emotions.
