Melissa Misoda

SONY DSCMelissa Misoda has been blowing glass for over 15 years. She received her BFA from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, and her MFA from Alfred University in New York. Melissa currently teaches glassblowing at Sammamish High School in Bellevue. She has been a guest artist at the Glass Museum in Tacoma, has been to Pilchuck Glass School as a student, teachers assistant as well as an artists assistant. She works independently for Dale Chihuly, and has shown internationally. Melissa has been published in 500 Glass Objects by Lark publishing, as well as the New Glass Review by the Corning Museum of Glass.

“I have been blowing glass since 1996 and co own Misoda Glassblowing Studio with my husband, Andy. I am inspired most by the spontaneity of my medium. My newest body of work strives to capture the process of flowing hot glass in a single moment. This has been an idea I feel has both challenged and inspired my work for years. My desire to create motion in an otherwise motionless object has also influenced me to further explore new color techniques in glass. With my special color blending technique, I hope to further this visual flow through each piece by creating seamless fades from one color into another.”
