Amy Rueffert
Amy Rueffert is an independent glass artist residing in Urbana, IL. She earned a B.F.A. from Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Since then, she has pursued independent studies at Ohio State University, Pilchuck Glass School, and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts as a scholarship student and a Teaching Assistant. Her educational pursuits have also taken her to Sweden, where she researched factory glassmaking on a grant awarded by the Swedish Embassy in New York City. She has studied with and worked alongside renowned artists Carmen Lozar, Jennifer Umphress, Kait Rhoads, and Ron Nagle.

Amy Rueffert’s modern-day curios are inspired by Victorian decorative art objects, which are known for their orderliness and ornamentation, as well as their tendency to mix characteristics from past stylistic eras. Rueffert’s work has been recognized in New Glass Review (1995, 1998, 2006-09), and she was awarded a merit prize in the Elizabeth R. Rafael Founder’s Exhibition. Her work was selected for the 2007 International Exhibition of glass in Kanazawa, Japan and was also in a group exhibition titled “Flora” at the Glasmuseet Ebeltoft in Denmark in 2010.
