About the Artist

Janis Miltenberger (Lopez Island) is a glass artist who creates intricate large-scale narrative sculpture. She began working in 1978 as glassblowing apprentice to Richard Marquis while concurrently studying glass at CCAC, and ceramics at Mills College. After 16 years of blowing glass Janis was introduced to Lampworking at Pilchuck Glass School. Utilizing the torch as her tool and working alone has allowed her to focus and define her voice with the material. Janis exhibits and teaches internationally and her work is included in both public and private collections in the U.S. and abroad.
