Hearts of Glass

Dena Pengas, Erica Rosenfeld, and Brad Teasdale met at Urban Glass, a nonprofit arts center in downtown Brooklyn, and were drawn together by a shared love of color and pattern. Their collaborative enterprise, Brooklyn Glassworks, translates that love into vivid glass art for architecture and design applications. At the ICFF, the brand-new company is launching a line of tiles (pictured) as well as lighting, furnishings, and tableware. “When my colleagues and I first approached this business, we were motivated by the sheer joy of working with kiln-formed glass,” Teasdale says. “The vibrancy of color and light offered by this medium is unmatched.” But the group is not just focused on aesthetics: “It is our intent to create designs that offer longevity as well as style and function.”
