Trained at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Scott Goss works in the field of glass painting, engraving, fusing and firing pieces with copper. When fired, his glass works take on a new life beyond the sum of their parts. Like the materials used to render them, Goss’s urban landscapes gain a beauty through his depiction that is not at first readily apparent.
Winner of a wide array of awards and fellowships, Goss is a two-time winner of the Viktor Schreckengost Award for Excellence in Glass, as well as a finalist for the Council of Smaller Enterprises Young Arts Entrepreneur Award. Scott was recently awarded a 2015 Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award.
Living and working in Cleveland, Goss uses industrial materials to explore the beauty of the deteriorating urban spaces of post-industrial cities. Goss’s work is held in private collections throughout the country, and has been commissioned by several Ohio institutions including his alma mater.
