Tahlia Priete

Tahlia Priete has practiced glass as an art form for over 10 years. Although she briefly attended the Academy of Art in San Francisco, where she has lived for 12 years, she is primarily self-taught in the disciplines of stained glass, fusing and slumping, as well as painting and drawing. Tahlia’s richly colored stained glass pieces are inspired by architecture and geometric forms, in some cases, and by free-flowing organic forms in others. During her residency at HCCC, she plans to create a stained glass “dress” and to explore new ways of layering her glass forms, such as fusing them with a kiln, or using adhesive rather than the more traditional process of using lead connectors.
