Learn About Grants for Artist Projects (GAP)


Tanner Weiss was born and raised along the coast of Hermosa Beach, California. Weiss grew up in a household full of art. His Columbian mother instilled a love of art and helped foster his love of glass by sending him to a high school that taught glassblowing. It was here that Weiss found his true love of art making. Weiss’s work continued to develop at Pilchuck Glass School during the summer workshops as a student, teaching assistant and coldshop coordinator. In 2017, Weiss made Seattle his home and has continued working as a freelance glass artist. Weiss has worked with artists such as Nancy Callan, Janusz Pozniak, Preston Singletary, Martin Blank, and more. In the fall of 2021 Weiss worked as an assistant to Jen Elek and Jeremy Bert during their neon and glassblowing concentration at Penland School of Crafts. As an artist pursuing his own work, Weiss has developed his love of glass through aquatic and environmental inspirations found in California and the Pacific Northwest.
