Megan Stelljes first fell in love with glass when she had an opportunity to apprentice for a glassblower while in high school. Her work is inspired by pop culture and humor and often incorporates blown glass and neon. Stelljes will spend her residency making components for her installations, focusing especially on creating sculptures of fruit.
Stelljes immensely enjoys the glassblowing process and sharing hot glass with others. She has been an instructor for MOG’s Hot Shop Heroes™ program for the past four years. This residency was awarded to Stelljes for winning Artist’s Choice at MOG's 2017 Red Hot Gala.
