Caroline Landau is a multi-disciplinary artist from Reading, PA. She graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 2013 with a BFA focused in painting, drawing, and printmaking.
The outdoors has long been a source of inspiration for Caroline. After a year in New Zealand spent working on stations, skiing, traveling, and interning with a glass artist in Auckland, she relocated to attend San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) in pursuit of an MFA. During graduate school she worked with multiple mediums, including paint and glass, to develop a body of work that explores the interplay of 2D and 3D forms. The intricacies and delicacies of the relationship between glass, painting, and performance art continue to inspire Caroline beyond her academic training.
Armed with an MFA from SFAI, Caroline spent the next couple years teaching and working with glass at Public Glass and Slow Burn Glass in San Francisco, CA, escaping to the mountains at every opportunity. In 2017, Caroline participated in the Arctic Circle Artist Residency in Svalbard, Norway where she worked on Archiving Ice.
Early in 2018, Caroline relocated to North Carolina at STARworks to improve her technical glassblowing skills and gain production experience,
Later in 2018, Caroline returned to the High Arctic of Svalbard/Spitsbergen for an extended period and worked aboard the tallship Antigua to continue to incorporate her experiences into her art.
