Glass Artist Ira Lujan
Traditional forms in an exciting new medium.
In the Summer of 2000, Lujan was introduced to glass-blowing in Taos, New Mexico where he apprenticed with foremost glass artist Tony Jojola (Isleta Pueblo). Lujan also studied under Native glass artist Preston Singletary (Tlingit) at the prestigious Pilchuck Glass School.
"Working with Tony Jojola brought forth the possibilities of incorporating native themes and influences along with ancient techniques of glass-blowing," said Lujan.
Today, Lujan's work is influenced by everyday scenes in contemporary Native America. When asked about how Lujan feels about glass work:
"I am fascinated by the movement of hot glass and the way it captures light—creating Native American Art with this new medium is exciting."
