From the Artist

Evan Schauss found his passion for art at the age of twelve at Chihuly’s Hilltop Artist school in his home town of Tacoma, Washington From age 12 on Evan has been creating passion into the soft glass world. Evan’s drive lead him to travel around the world to work with masters in the craft such as Pino Signoretto, Lino Tagliapeitra, Dale Chihuly and Martin Blank.

Soon after starting glassblowing, Evan built his first all in one hot shop. The energy efficient “Hot Glass Shop in a box”, has also made mobile glass blowing possible. Since Evan’s first creation he has completed building 12 more shops. Evan’s inventions have been operating in Maui since 2008. Through hot shop donations including the Hui Noe’au Visual Arts Center and offering classes in the past to Maui Youth and Family Center, Evans provided opportunity to bring art into the community.

Currently also the landlord of the Sawmill Art Collective, a coworking space shared by other local artists, Evan continues to prove his dedication to bring the art into the community. With over 22 years of experience already, Evan has chosen to exclusively show his art in three Fine Art galleries on Maui. He currently has his own private studio in Haiku, where he feels most comfortable with himself in front of the glory hole. He creates the entirety of his art pieces in Haiku with his girlfriend assisting in the hot shop. Together, with his girlfriend Savannah, Evan continues to explore the meaning and expression of art through glassblowing and sculpting.
