About

Pohlman and Knowles began their collaboration in 1992. They use a variety of materials in their rich assemblages, including hot-sculpted glass, various metal works, found objects and beads, achieving a fine sense of formal balance. Three notable research field trips had a profound impact on their personal and artistic development: in 1997 they visited Zimbabwe and Botswana; returning to Africa they visited Ghana in 2000; and in 2002 they traveled to Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and East Africa. They gathered creative and emotional inspiration from these travels. These experiences are used to create sculptures that embody mythological stories in glass. Part of the narrative of the object is derived from the artists’ own travels and part by ancient cultures and magic of African life as witnessed by the two artists: “We have a point of origin and balance our elements within that framework. “ Selected Collections Boca Raton Museum of Art, Boca Raton, FL Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, WA Cancer Care Alliance Center, Seattle, WA Anne Gould Hauberg Collection, Seattle, WA Allen & Kathleen Shoup Collection, Seattle, WA Jon & Mary Shirley Collection, Seattle, WA Museum of American Glass, Millville, NJ Museum of Glass, Tacoma, WA Racine Art Museum, Racine, WI Mobile Museum of Art, Mobile, AL "Untitled, Homage Series, Two Figures", Blown, Sculpted, and Polished Glass; Steel with Patina

About the Artist

Jenny Pohlman and Sabrina Knowles

Sabrina Knowles and Jenny Pohlman began their collaboration in 1992. The artists use a variety of materials in their rich assemblages, including hot-sculpted glass, various metal works, found objects and beads, achieving a fine sense of formal balance.

For Knowles (b. 1955) and Pohlman (b. 1960), three notable research field trips had a profound impact on their personal and artistic development: In 1997 they visited Zimbabwe and Botswana; returning to Africa they visited Ghana in 2000; and in 2002 they traveled to Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and East Africa. The pair gathered creative and emotional inspiration from these travels. These experiences are used to create sculptures that embody mythological stories in glass. Part of the narrative of the object is derived from the artists’ own travels and part by ancient cultures and magic of African life as witnessed by the two artists: “We have a point of origin and balance our elements within that framework.“

The work of Knowles and Pohlman is in the collections of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, Flint Art Institute, Henry Ford Museum; Lowe Museum of Art, Miami; Mobile Museum of Art; Museum of American Glass; Museum of Glass; National Liberty Museum; New Bedford Museum of Glass; Racine Art Museum; Tacoma Art Museum; and Imagine Museum among others.
