Carrie Iverson and Jeremy Scidmore founded IV fab lab as a glass hub for design, fabrication and collaboration. We’ve partnered with architects, photographers, interior designers, and artists on bringing their ideas to life, and welcome everyone to the lab to explore their creativity.
I have been working with the glass medium since 1996 as a designer, fabricator, and artist. My experience runs the gamut of studio glass arts practice, employing techniques such as kilnforming, glassblowing, flameworking, glass printmaking, and neon. I have maintained studios in each of these glass practices and taught nationally and internationally in public and private studios including Chicago Hot Glass (Chicago, IL), University of Illinois Urbana Champaign (Urbana, IL), The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL), Public Glass (San Francisco, CA), The Crucible (Oakland, CA), Bullseye Glass Company (Portland, OR and Emeryville CA), Pilchuck Glass School (Stanwood, WA), Pittsburgh Glass Center (Pittsburgh, PA), Ox-Bow School of Art (Saugatuck, MI), and Northlands Creative Glass (Lybster, Scotland.)
I received my B.F.A. at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and later returned there to study arts administration and policy.
I have worked as a designer since 1999, often blending digital technologies with object making. As a lead designer for Paper Source and Waste Not Paper (Chicago, Illinois) I assisted in designing and prototyping products for clients such as MoMA (NY) and the Nature Company. As an independent designer I have assisted in book design, model making for public art projects, and preparing images from initial digital photography to pre-press to production. Facilitated public art projects include LEED certified paintings at Boston Logan Airport and a site specific installation at the Bucktown Public Library (Chicago, IL).
In addition to my design work, I am also an established artist. My work is in many private and public collections, including The Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago, IL), Brooklyn Museum (Brooklyn, NY), The Museum of Modern Art, (New York, NY), and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago, IL). I received my BA from Yale University in 1994, with a double major in English and Studio Art. I received my MFA in 1998 from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago, where I focused on digital offset printing and artist's books.
