Jenna Efrein graduated from Alfred University in 2009 with her degree in Sculpture/Dimensional Studies with a focus in glass. She completed her BA at The Evergreen State College in 1993. She has been working with glass since 1989, blowing for the past four. Her work focuses on the visual manifestation of the internal self as it might appear on the external.
