Artist: Sarah Blomquist
Sarah Blomquist is a local artist who grew up in Centerville, and now lives on the East Side of Saint Paul. She attended the University of Wisconsin – River Falls, where she studied art. During her time there, she enrolled in glassblowing and quickly became enamored with working with glass. After school, like changed course and glassblowing was put on the back burner. After several years away from glass, she started working at Bicycle Glass Co. in Fridley, MN. When she is not at work, she rents bench time at Vandalia Glassworks in South Saint Paul. Sarah’s work draws inspiration from nature, specifically the colors of the different Minnesota seasons. Her goal is for the colors of her pieces to evoke a specific memory for the viewer. Sarah likes that glass is so versatile and plays an important role in our daily lives. When Sarah is not making glass, she likes to spend time with family, friends and her dogs. On weekends, she can usually be found exploring the many beautiful parks that Minnesota has to offer.
