About the Studio

The glass studio, located in Chicago’s East Garfield Park neighborhood, is a collaborative community art space. Pearl joined forces with ArtReach Chicago  to bring fire-based, social justice, arts programming to the city. Mediums range from ceramics to glass blowing. 

The studio, built from scratch by Pearl and her team, was created to provide an accessible and supportive community space for artists, where creativity is nurtured and collaboration is pivotal.
