Nancy Freeman was a glassblower based in Ashokan in the Catskill Mountains of New York. Freeman earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 1973, then became apprenticed to glassblower Henry Summs. After studying with Summs, she attended the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina in 1974. Freeman's work has been exhibited in many shows and is part of several museum and private collections. Vice President Mondale's wife chose her stemware for the permanent collection of the US Vice-Presidential Residence in the late 1970s. Freeman ran her own studio into the late 1980s.
