Bio

Throughout her young artistic career, Danielle Brensinger has explored her voice through various techniques involving glass and mixed media. She was raised in small town in Pennsylvania by a family of active hunters and often draws reference from her childhood and relates it to her current place. Danielle has always been heavily influenced by community, often seeking solace and inspiration from the landscapes and people she is currently surrounded by. This, along with her exploration of materials, has lead to a vast diversity within her body of art. After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Glass from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in 2012, she immediately became immersed in the world of glass lighting and production. She currently lives in Brooklyn, New York where she works as a freelance glassblower, artist assistant and educator out of UrbanGlass. Brensinger also currently works as an adjunct professor out of Salem Community College in New Jersey. She has recieved full scholarships from the Celebrity Fund and the Tommie Rush and Richard Jolley Scholarship Fund to attend classes at the Corning Museum of Glass and the Penland School of Crafts. Danielle has also been able to attend Pilchuck Glass School and the Bild-Werk Academy in Frauenau, Germany as a teaching assistant for both glass blowing and bronze casting classes.
