Sibylle Peretti received her MFA in Sculpture and Painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Cologne and a Master in Glass Making & Design from the State School of Glass in Zwiesel, Germany.  Her work has won numerous awards and endorsments, including grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the Joan Mitchell Foundation as well as the 2013 United States Artist Fellowship for her glass sculptures and multimedia collages, which combine photography & drawing with surface interventions such as engraving, mirroring and glass slumping.  Children and nature, as symbols of innocence and promise, are the central themes in Sibylle’s work. 

Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, NY; Carnegie Museum of Art (Pittsburgh, PA), Museum of American Glass (Milleville, NJ), Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (Canada), Museum für Kunsthandwerk (Frankfurt, Germany), Hunter Museum (Chattanooga TN), Speed Museum (Louisville,KY), 21c Museum (Louisville, KY), and the Barry Art Museum (Norfolk, VA).  Sibylle splits her time between New Orleans, Louisiana and Frauenau, Germany.
