Hope Forstenzer is a native New Yorker who worked extensively in ﬁlm, theatre and ceramics before falling madly and irrevocably in love with glass in 2000. By 2003 she had moved to Seattle to study glass with as many glass artists as she could ﬁnd. She slowly developed a feel and style of her own, ﬁnally becoming a teacher herself in 2008. She has been living in Vancouver since 2012, and is a proud member of Terminal City Glass Co-op, where she works and teaches. She has shown her sculptural work in juried shows at D’Adamo Waltz Gallery in Seattle, Seymour Art Gallery in North Vancouver, the Craft Council of British Columbia Gallery in Vancouver, PoMoArts in Port Moody, BC, The Art Gallery of Burlington in Burlington, Ontario, and as part of a group commission for the Vancouver Opera, among others.
