Janet D. Duvall, M.Ed. ,(Executive Director) has been with the organization since March of 2010. She has more than 20 years of experience in management of for profit and not-for-profit organizations. Janet is also a local pastel artist whose works are in private collections throughout the United States. She was drawn to Tulsa Glassblowing Studio by the programming for youth and the impact that the art form has on those youth.
“It is amazing to see a teenager come to the studio and be awestruck by the setting. They immediately understand that this is not a typical art form. The elements of danger, creativity, and immediate gratification really draw them into the art form.”
Rachel Haynes, B.F.A. in glass, (Program Director) has been with the organization since August of 2010. She graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington where she spent 5 years learning the art of glassblowing. She has experience with metal work and glass casting as well. Rachel is currently collaborating with Kreg Kallenberger, an internationally recognized glass artist, and Stephen Wood, a Native American artist respected throughout the Southwest.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the studio. The artist community in Tulsa has been very supportive of me and the studio.”
