Neal Paustian is an artist and educator native to North Texas. He earned his Master of Fine Arts from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2014 and currently works for their Art + Art History department.

Neal uses glass, steel, cement and other industrial materials to address his thoughts regarding our personal and societal relationships to water. The materials are simple, the processes are complicated and the results are poetic objects intended to inspire conversation.

In Winter of 2015, the Greater Denton Arts Council hosted Neal's first solo exhibition, When the Well is Dry, We Know the Worth. His work has been featured in the Corning Museum of Glass' New Glass Review publication and was most recently published in a book titled CAST: Art and Objects Made Using Humanity's Most Transformational Process.
