“Michael Peluso was interested in drawing and art from early childhood. When he started his undergraduate work he initially majored in architectural and interior design, however, he quickly discovered that he preferred a greater art base within his work. He returned to Central PA and when he took his first glassblowing class on a whim, he knew he had found his calling. He went on to discover that his ancestors had blown glass in both Italy and Germany. Michael’s studies in glass continued at the soft glass studio of Harrisburg Area Community College, where he received a degree in visual art and design. Michael has taken numerous classes at The Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, NY. He has studied under glassblowing and flame working masters such as William Gudenrath, Michael Scheiner, James Nowak, Michael Rogers, Milon Townsend, Jane Bruce and the late Elio Quarisa. Michael has 20 years experience in functional glass making and currently operates a soft glass and flame working studio in Elizabethtown, PA. His work is displayed in regional galleries and shops, and he regularly participates in art festivals and artist shows. Michael teaches glassblowing at his studio and instructs at the Art Center and Galleries of Mechanicsburg, PA, where he also serves on the board of directors. He also instructs classes at Brain Vessel Gallery in Mechanicsburg, PA”.
