About Taf Schaefer
Taf Schaefer’s work reflects a reverence for nature. Taf was inspired by her early years on Cape Cod, where the freedom to explore beaches and study wildlife propelled a personal interest in art and science. Taf uses research and hands-on modeling and carving to realize a design. Schaefer’s personal connection with her work speaks directly to the collectors and customers who share that passion as she continues into her second decade designing for Steuben Glass and creating organic accessories. Taf resides and works in her studio in the Seacoast area of New Hampshire where exploring and collecting treasures fuels her creativity.
Whether it’s carving stone, sculpting wax or designing glass, Taf’s process involves an immersion in nature, a drive to explore materials and a willingness to tackle new projects. Taf Schaefer was the top selling designer at Steuben Glass for almost 14 years.
