Like all of Preston Singletary’s work, Tlingit Magic Hat fuses the traditional designs of his Native Northwest culture with the modern materials and techniques of contemporary art glass. Transformation themes, shamanism, and basketry patterns are among his inspirations. Singletary based this work on a centuries-old Tlingit design (see photo below), yet here the enhanced crown represents the fin of a killer whale.

Singletary started blowing glass directly out of high school and developed his style and approach through practical experience and by working with area artists, both Native and non-Native. Currently a member of the Board of Trustees at the Pilchuck Glass School, his work is included in museum collections throughout the world.
