Hello! My name is Rebecca Silverman, BA, the face behind Dreaming Tree Glass. I first discovered my love and passion for glass in 2011, while attending Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan. As an undergrad, I started working at a shop near campus that primarily sold locally made glass. I immediately became submerged in a world of beautifully made and intricately colored glass.
It was at that shop that I began to meet the artists behind the work I admired. I asked every Glassblower I met to work for trade in their shops, persuading them to let me clean, organize, or do anything necessary to convince them to help train me in their craft.
Since then, I have worked more than 10 years in furnace glass blowing production. I took a variety of intensive six-day studies of various techniques at Corning Museum of Glass to increase my skills and worked with many master glass blowers. In 2023 I made the decision to go out on my own and start my solo career.

Yes! when I have time, and when I like the idea. Fill out my custom order form and we can go from there.
Generally 6-8 weeks from when payment is made.
I love to make functional glass. Cups are definitely a favorite. Bright colors and fun patterns are a favorite too!
I work with other artists as often as possible! Collaborating is not only fun, it’s a great way to learn.
I love the speed of it. How immediate the process is. I love being able to troubleshoot and problem-solve an issue and get better each time I attempt a process/ move.
