Born in 1973, under the cold November skies of Pennsylvania, Gregory Nangle first began making sculpture at the tender age of two when he began experiments with the family clocks and radios. After a very long and unusually active childhood, Gregory began pursing art seriously in middle school when he set up his first studio in the basement of his parents’ house. Not much has changed since then; he just has his own basement now.
Gregory attended the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia and the University of Hartford Art School in Hartford, CT.He is the owner and operator of Outcast Studios, a bronze and glass casting studio in Philadelphia, PA. Prior to starting his business, Gregory worked in the glass studios of Simon Pearce and Steve Tobin.
He has participated in several important gallery and museum exhibitions, including exhibitions at the Museum of American Glass at Wheaton Village in 2005, the National Liberty Museum in 2005, SOFA NY (represented by Wexler Gallery) in 2001 and 2002, and Wheaton Village’s GlassWeekend (represented by Morgan Contemporary Glass Gallery) in 2003 and 2005. Gregory also has work in the collection of the Glass Musee Ebeltoft in Denmark and several private collections.
His publications include Glass Magazine in 2001 and 2003 and International Glass Art, published by Schiffer Books in 2003.
