Eoin Breadon @ Flame Run

Through May 30

Flame Run Gallery
828 E. Market St. 

Flame Run contemporary art glass studio features Eoin Breadon, a glass artist whose work is influenced by Irish folklore and craftsmanship. Breadon has trained in glass studios in Ireland, Australia and the United States. He sees his role reflecting that of Celtic storytellers who passed down unwritten culture and history in the form of long lyric poems.

“I am transmitting the cultural experience of Irish folklore to the greater populace,” says Breadon. “I continue the artistic evolution through traditional Irish craftsmanship and the aesthetic and mnemonic value of imagery and composition set forth by the bards and monks.”

Breadon received his MFA in glass from Tyler School of Art at Temple University in 2004. His art has been internationally shown in galleries and museums and he has taught at numerous schools and art centers around the U.S.  He is a member of the sculpture and glass faculty at the Cleveland Institute of Art.
