Preston Singletary

Preston Singletary’s journey with glass began in 1982, unknowingly leading him to a profound connection with the material. It was through the exploration of his Tlingit cultural heritage that his work took on a new purpose and direction. Over time, his mastery of glass and traditional form line design grew, allowing him to delve deeper into his own cultural roots and chosen medium of glass. Singletary’s collaborations and teachings with indigenous artists worldwide revealed the transformative power of glass in indigenous art, connecting ancient codes and symbols of the land with a vibrant visual language. His work challenges the notion that traditional materials define Native artists’ best creations, advocating for all indigenous people and affirming their presence and cultural expression through art. Singletary’s evolving work continues to bridge his personal perspective with contemporary art movements, inspiring other underrepresented indigenous artists to embrace innovation and non-traditional materials.
