“I feel blessed to have a career as an artist. All of my work is based on my Alaskan Native ancestry. The art that I do today gives me a sense of purpose because it’s all part of a continuum.”
—Preston Singletary, Artist, Seattle, Washington
Preston is literally able to bend the elements to his will, forging delicately powerful art from glass and fire. Yet, as fascinating as his work is to look at, it’s the centuries-old stories the pieces tell that make them truly one-of-a-kind.
