Matt Paskiet, a native of Toledo, studied glass arts at the Pilchuck School in Washington State under the instruction of glass master Dino Rosin of Murano, Italy. After finishing at Pilchuck, he worked and studied glass at “The Boathouse” under world-renowned artist Dale Chihuly. Matt has also studied under the respected glass artist Renee Culler at the Centre de Vidre de Barcelona in Spain. Matt’s Glass reflects his unique vision and passion in the way he uses a variety of age-old and off-hand forming methods. The results are works of great depth, optical fascination and beauty. His works have been displayed in a number of national and international exhibitions, shows, and galleries. In 2004 Matt was awarded the Toledo Glass Guild’s Dominick Labino Award.
