Maria Prus is a Providence, RI based glass artist who love pushing herself to the next level during multi-hour sessions in the hotshop. Starting with a ball of molten glass on a blowpipe, she transforms this basic setup by incorporating interesting color techniques and creating sophisticated forms focusing on bowls, vases, and drinkware.

Maria started working with glass at the Pittsburgh Glass Center in 2005 and has continued to work at the MIT Glass Lab and NOCA glass school in Cambridge since 2006. Maria has also completed multiple workshops at the Pilchuck Glass School.
