Preston Singletary

Preston Singletary (b. 1963 in San Francisco, CA) is a Tlingit glass artist. Singletary transfers Tlingit designs, traditionally carved in wood, onto glass. He studied at the Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington.

Light is integral to his work, and he uses it to add dimension to the glass and his design. His work is in the collections of the Corning Museum of Glass, the Heard Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, and Seattle Art Museum.

Preston Singletary is featured in the Pilchuck Glass School segment of the COMMUNITY episode, as well as the FAMILY episode of Craft in America.
