Mari Budnick's Profile
My name is Mari Budnick. I am a glass artist living in the Pacific Northwest. After working as a software engineer in California in the 80s, my husband and I moved to Oregon to raise our family. Now that my children are grown, I am pursuing my first and primary passion--art.
I have always been drawn to the reflective, transparent, and colorful fluidity of glass. After taking a glass fusing class, I became obsessed with creating fused glass art using the kiln forming process. I am constantly visualizing possible artistic concepts and I'm always excited as I head to the studio to get to work. The process of creating fused glass art can be technically challenging and I love trying to figure out how to realize my artistic concepts.
I am very fortunate to live in Portland, Oregon, a city with two wonderful art glass manufactures and a thriving art…
