Mark Americo Wentz
Wentz makes his sculptures intuitively and methodically. He combines a variety of skills, techniques, and experiences to drive his art making process. Wentz believes his work is a timeline or story of his life experiences.
It has been Wentz's life journey to experience all aspects of art making. He uses traditional craft techniques while also taking a more conceptual approach to each piece. Much of his glass elements come from salvaged glass that has been fused back together to create new from old. He seeks out pieces of wood that have history and character, and combines them with the glass to create a unique kind of sculpture.
Mark Wentz received his BFA from Kent State University with a focus on glass. He then studied with and worked for several glass artists and sculptors across the country, focusing predominately on blown glass. He later received an MFA in sculpture from Savanna College of Art and Design.
