She has always been passionate about the contemporary art world and, thus, enjoys working directly with the artistic team and clients.

Aaron Ostman

has always had a creative mind.  He surrounds himself with innovation and art.  Most recently, he has delved into the world of digital art. His love of art, along with his fascination in the production of glass, contributes meaningfully on the Glassworks’ creative team.  He likes the variety and customization of each glass fabrication.

His favorite part of being a glass fabricator is Research and Development, where he can let his mind explore glass ideas and he is free to test them out.

Ben White

graduated with a BFA Studio Art and minor in Art History from the University of Central Oklahoma before moving to Seattle in 2017. He began working with glass over 16 years ago when his uncle decided it would be a good experience for them to learn the art of stained glass together. He has moved on from there to make decorative optical glass art.

Ben’s hands-on artistic background has trained him to be aware of the minute details of production that glass requires.  The fabrication team benefits from his diligence and love of the material.
