_

German-born glass artist Sibylle Peretti has lived in New Orleans since 1996. Using glass as a canvas, Peretti creates dreamlike figurative works that can incorporate drawing or photography. She has recently created a series of works on the theme of feral children, which allows her to explore the often-fraught relationship between humans and nature. Peretti has taught at the Pilchuck Glass School in Washington and the Penland School of crafts in North Carolina.
