Crafts: Glass; Blown Glass
Oberini Glass is owned and operated by the husband and wife team of Ana Willow Obermayr and Conar Piermarini.
Ana Willow’s family have all been artists for four generations, both of her grandparents were professors of art, and her great grandmother, Mathilda, painted masterworks in ceramics in a porcelain factory in Vienna in the 1800s.
Ana Willow Obermayr has been blowing glass since 1994. She studied under a master and other artists for seven years in Seattle, attendede Pilchuck Glass School, University of Miami, and Eugene Glass School with Maestro Pino Signoretto, and in Portland with the Maestra Karen Willenbrink.
Conar’s great grandfather Giuseppi, designed La Scala Opera Hall in Milan Italy in the 1600s. Conar Piermarini has been painting and composing electronic music since the early 1990’s. He studied architecture and design in North Carolina and at Miami Dade College.
Between the two of them, Obermayr and Piermarini have channeled all those generations of talent, and their own well developed skills, into the execution of some of the finest contemporary glass lighting, vessels, and sculptural designs available today. Together they are Oberini, a labor of love.
