After teaching at The Ohio State University for ten years, Deborah Horrell chose full time studio practice and moved to Portland, OR. The artist has a history of changing both visual vocabulary and material. Horrell made a shift to using glass as a primary sculptural medium after working with ceramics and wood. An artist in residence position at the Pilchuck Glass School and a residency at the Bullseye Factory changed the trajectory of her work after introducing her to glass as an alternate sculptural medium. Horrell is represented by the Elizabeth Leach Gallery. She teaches workshops nationally/internationally. She has shown her work in museums and galleries and has completed public and private commissions.
