Biography: Paulina Komorowska-Birger

Paulina Komorowska-Birger

Paulina Komorowska-Birger studied with glass artist Anna Skibska and the painter Wanda Golkowska at the Fine Arts Academy in Wroclaw, Poland. Since her graduation in 1990, she has pursued her vision of glass as a painterly medium. She adopted Skibska’s technique of cutting glass rods and melting them at the burner to make small glass threads. She continues to use this technique to create her large compositions. Her work is mostly conceptual, involving flameworked glass and painting. Her installations have been presented in many group and solo shows, and her work has twice been selected for inclusion in New Glass Review.
