Owner and Artist
Malcom Potek has been working in glass since 1991. He works primarily in kiln cast assembly and cold-work. Malcom, an experienced torchworker, creates custom canes for inclusion in his kiln work as well. A teacher for twenty plus years Malcom leads workshops throughout the United States as well as in the shop and privately. With his experience he develops curriculum both for public art projects and as part of the Potekglass Curriculum.
Kara van Wyk has been drawing since she could hold a pencil. She studied visual art at St. Olaf college, graduating with a visual art major and a license to teach K-12 visual art as well. When she met Malcom 20 years ago, her future mother-in-law gave her some high-firing glass paints and encouraged her to step into the glass medium with her painting skills. Now she has explored high-fired inclusions, low-fired paints, kiln-forming, and has recently made a foray into casting glass. She is a "maker" at heart, happy to commune with numerous media to put well-crafted objects into the world.
