Eóin Breadon received his MFA in glass from Tyler School of Art at Temple University in 2004, and he has since worked and trained in glass studios in Ireland, Australia, and the United States. Breadon’s work mimics the tradition of seanchaí, which is the practice of Irish storytellers who are responsible for the transmission of Celtic culture, history and laws through the recitation of long lyrical poems. Breadon’s work is shown and collected internationally by galleries and museums. For the past five years he served as a member of the sculpture and glass faculty at the Cleveland Institute of Art but now resides and works in Southern California. Breadon just participated in the gallery’s teapots! exhibit and expertease will be his first sculptural group show in the gallery. Breadon taught at the Pittsburgh Glass Center in July.
