Featured Artist: Zach Puchowitz


Featured Artist: Zach Puchowitz

As we announced last week, The Glass House website now features an online shop with some of our most unique glass. We adore working with so many talented artists and want you to know a little more about the people behind the pieces.

Today, we’re looking at Zach Puchowitz, who works out of his very own Ouchkick Studio in Philadelphia, PA. He began playing around with glass in the late 1990’s, graduated from the Tyler School of Art in 2003, and then commenced his glassmaking career. After some time traveling and studying under various teachers, Zach moved back to Philly and began Ouchkick in 2007.

Zach makes visually dazzling pieces, like the Sherlock featured on our online store, but he also designs a variety of other work both glass and otherwise, including lights and lamps, pendants, and a whole roll of toilet paper featuring his images printed with soy ink. His style is industrial and dark, but with a goofy side. We told you he was creative, and you know we don’t lie.

Check out Zach’s website for a gallery of his past exhibits, too. The Pipeheads are a strange little version of cute – “Legalize Me!,” their signs say. His characters ask questions like, “How does one constantly adapt to keep up with future development [of virtual and digital intelligence]?” and address topics like “human behavior and the internal struggle that we deal with in our modern everyday lives.” In addition to their stunning aesthetic, they make us think further about what this life means.

We hope you’ll take the time to read more about Zach at www.ouchkick.com, then head over to theglasshousetx.bigcartel.com to see his Sherlock pipe.
