Fusion Notes, a visual memoir, is a loosely thematic dive into Preston Singletary’s life and artistic practices. The title of this book speaks to Singletary’s multi-faceted spirit, Tlingit background, and enduring love for music and the medium of glass.

Preston Kochéin Singletary (b. 1963, San Francisco; lives in Seattle) is an internationally recognized glass artist of Tlíngit descent. Singletary began blowing glass at Glass Eye Studio in Seattle in 1982. He developed his skills as a production glass maker, and attended the Pilchuck Glass School, going on to work at the studio of Benjamin Moore. There, he broadened his skills by assisting Dante Marioni, Richard Royal, Dan Dailey and Lino Tagliapietra among others, and started to develop his own work.

Singletary’s works of public art have been installed in multiple locations in the Northwest; other works are included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Seattle Art Museum; the Ethnographic Museum, Stockholm; The National Museum of Scotland; The British Museum; and The Smithsonian National Museum of The American Indian, among others. 

Preston Singletary’s Frog Feast Bowl (1997) and Whale Hat (1999) are now on view in the Seattle Art Museum's third floor galleries.
