Marzena Krzemińska Baluch

A glass artist, she obtained a master’s degree in 2006 at the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Fine Arts in Wrocław, and the following year she started working in glass artist Małgorzata Dajewska’s workshop. In addition, she has been the internationalization commissioner of her alma mater since 2016, where she also obtained her Ph.D. in 2018. She has participated in numerous international exhibitions and professional collaborations (USA, Japan, Europe). Besides Poland, her works can be found in North American, Japanese, Dutch, and German museums.

Her art can be identified by plastic forms that evoke crinkled and folded fabrics, as well as folds and undulations visible in nature. Besides their shape that negates the hardness of glass, the detailed surface texturing of her sculptures and objects is also impressive. She is a sculptor through and through, seeking to play with materials, to find the excitement and lessons of giving shape; so perhaps it is not surprising that most of her works are white, black, or transparent.
