Erin Hoffman is an interdisciplinary artist that primarily uses glass as her formal and conceptual inspiration. Currently, she is working as the Studio Coordinator at the Bay Area Glass Institute in San Jose, California. Originally from Allentown, PA, she attended Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia (2015) and graduated with her BFA in glass. She then moved to Louisville, KY where she worked as the Departmental Assistant at the University of Louisville glass department (2015-2018). Hoffman received her MFA in Sculpture and Dimensional Studies at Alfred University in New York (2020).
My work is the interface between ideas from many disciplines such as sculpture, electronic arts, and linguistic theories. At the core is my eagerness to peel away the layers of human communication. Using materials, symbols, and situations that reference ways we communicate I question how we interpret the distortion that inevitably happens through transmission.
please contact me with any art or glass related inquiries- I look forward to hearing from you!
