Nancy Callan’s artistic voice as a glass sculptor reflects her high-level training and talents. Since attending the Massachusetts College of Art (BFA 1996), Callan has received numerous awards including the Creative Glass Center of America Fellowship and residencies at the Museum of Glass (Tacoma, WA), The Toledo Museum of Art (Toledo, OH), the Pittsburgh Glass Center (Pittsburgh, PA), and the Chrysler Museum (Norfolk, VA), and STARworks (Star, NC). Callan has taught advanced glassblowing at the Pilchuck School of Glass, Haystack Mountain School, and Penland School of Craft, and has lectured and demonstrated her techniques in Finland, Denmark, Japan, Australia and Germany. In 2011, she presented a talk at TedXEast, introducing glassblowing and her accomplishments to a wider audience. Callan was a key member of maestro Lino Tagliapietra’s glassblowing team for nineteen years, retiring in 2015. She lives and works in Seattle, WA.
