Melanie Pawleski, an Abington Resident, recently displayed her fused glass artwork at the Upper Dublin Craft Fair.
Pawleski, who attended the fair for the first time is comparatively newer to being a crafter than most crafters there.
Pawleski is a 2011 graduate of Moore College Art and Design in Philadelphia. She studied art education and fine arts.
She specializes in glass art, particularly Fused-Art Glass artwork, in which she takes smaller broken pieces of glass, and, essentially, melts them together to create flowing patterns of color.
However, wanting to further promote her work and sell more pieces, Pawleski had to re-imagine her art for the craft-show audience by turning her artwork into glass bowls and plates.
“I had to make my art more functional, so people could use it on a daily basis,” she said. “It’s safe and non-toxic.”
