About Shayna


Shayna Leib received her MFA in from University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2003. Prior to that she studied at California Polytechnic State University.

Leib first came into contact with glass art at seven years old through a demonstration at her local university and recalls it as a life changing experience. Her glass work pivots on an innate sense of of design and rhythm, testing its malleable structure at different temperatures.

She intrigued by multitudes of tiny little parts, such as blades of grass in the wind. ‘My visual concept of beauty has always been fractal,’ she says.

‘As you pan out you have waves of form. Zoom in and you see each individual blade of grass moving to the flow of the wind. Everything in nature possesses this quality.’

Leib has received numerous honorable mentions and grants for her work and exhibited across the United States. Apart from her glass work, she is a concert pianist.

What a rare treat to see such fluid motion in Moebius...The swirling textures are quite evocative of MC Escher's multi-dimensional work. Both Escher and now, Shayna, have created delights for the eye AND the brain. Quite a stunning accomplishment! Please contact me if similar pieces are for sale!
