She has taught workshops throughout the workd, including The Glass Furnace, Istanbul, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Penland School of Crafts, The Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass, and Urban Glass.
Her work will be in the exhibit “Material Matters: Three Masterful Approaches to Fiber, Wood, and Glass” on view at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art in San Francisco, September 14 — November 27, 2005.
Pamina’s sculpture is based n pairs. But rather than pursuing uniformity or similarity, her work explored oppositions through form, material, structure, and finish. She tends to work with glass and metal. The majority of her pieces are solid glass forms juxtaposed with metal or wood structured that articulate the glass through a context of form.
