Angus M Powers is a contemporary sculptor working with blown and cast glass sculpture, installations and function wares. Angus explores glass and mixed material sculpture with a philosophy that anything is possible and the ability to fail will take him further into the craft and concepts of any particular body of work.
Angus has practiced glass making and education since graduating from Tyler School of art in 2002 with an MFA in glass Working under Daniel Cutrone and Jon Clark. He attended Alfred University and received his BFA in Sculpture, Glass, and Light studying with Steve Edwards and Fred Tschida.
His work has been experimental and has meandered through all types of venues and has focused on glass, light, technology, craft, and design.
Angus Powers is currently a Glass Head and Associate Professor of Glass in the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Most recently he has been developing curriculum that promotes collaboration between glass artist and engineers in a course called GLASSARTENGINE. Look for his most recent works at www.anguspowers.com
