Zach Puchowitz

Zach Puchowitz first experienced glassmaking in 1998. He became addicted very quick and built his first lampworking studio in 1999 as well as began studying glass at the Tyler School of Art. While avoiding learning anything useful, Zach was able to develop his understanding of the arts and glass as a material. He sharpened his hand skills in the flame-working and furnace glass studios while developing his creative process.

After graduating in 2003, he spent a year in Burlington, Vermont thawing ice as a resident artist at local glass shops. Needing more perspective, Zach traveled throughout Europe for 3 months while he grew out his beard and pondered life.

Zach decided to return to his native Philadelphia, shave his face, and establish his own multi format glass shop. In 2007, he began transforming the space that would later become Ouchkick Studio. Since then, Zach has experimented with different avenues of the conventional glass artist. He has returned to his alma mater to give slide lectures, he has been a teacher at local glass shops, and he has been privileged to work with and be the teaching assistant for the late Venetian Maestro, ELio Quarisa. Zach has shown work in galleries in Philadelphia, New York City, Los Angeles, “SOFA” Chicago, and many other unconventional events and marketplaces. Ultimately, Zach has become immersed and well known in a subculture of taboo glass making. Currently, Zach is making glass every day and loving it.
