Jenny Pohlman and Sabrina Knowles first met in 1989 while on staff at Pilchuck Glass School. Their collaborative work began in 1993. Inspired by the roles of women from various civilizations and throughout history, they have completed seven international journeys as students and seekers, informing their artistic narrative and mythologies. In 2000, Pohlman and Knowles established the Pohlman Knowles High School Scholarship at Pratt Fine Arts Center and continue to sponsor the scholarship annually. They served as trustees for the Bellevue Arts Museum from 2009 through 2012. Pohlman is in her second term on the board of Pratt and currently serving as president. Throughout their careers, they have been recognized through numeous artistic residencies, fellowships and awards. Their work continues to be featured in major galleries and art expositions. It is included in many prominent private and institutional collections nationally. In 2018, the duo celebrated their 25 years of collaboration. Pohlman and Knowles live and work in Seattle, WA.


“From our earliest collaborative efforts we have explored the feminine fluidity, curvature, strength and plasticity inherent in glass. The innate three-dimensionality of molten glass assists with our design visions and we often see new forms emerging from the forms we are working on in the hot shop. These glimpses into the next possibility fuel our enthusiasm and the direction of our designs. Our inspiration comes from own life experience, whether that be from day-to-day life, our travels, or our studies of both ancient and contemporary cultures with an emphasis on women. It is our intent to create sculptural forms and assemblages that evoke the sensuous curves of the feminine and provide a narrative that embraces our common humanity.� Jenny Pohlman & Sabrina Knowles
