About

Amy Anderson and Alesia Anderson, we are a mother and daughter act.

Amy- I have been working with glass for 22 years. My 3 years of college were focused on Fine Arts, painting, drawing and etching, however, when my kids were small, I had a chance to work in a glass studio creating Gemeaux pieces(glass adhered with epoxy) and well, glass is now one of my main art mediums.

At present, I am only showing stained glass work here on Etsy, although I also design and build mosaics and dabble in paper collage and fabric collage. All of my glass pieces are designed and made by me, using various techniques:gemeaux(epoxy adhered glass), copperfoil(copper adhesive tape attached to glass and soldered) and leaded stained glass(glass adhered with lead and soldered). Please Visit www.andersonartworks [!at] blogspot.com for other current works.

Alesia- Although my degree is in history and learning about the past, presently, I am working with the future, 3-5 year old children. As a child, my mothers art supplies were readily available and encouraged to be used for many creative adventures.

Now as an adult, one of my favorite mediums is polymer clay. I mix various polymer clays together to create new and interesting colors. I also sculpt all of, the beads into various shapes, and then I create necklaces and earrings, etc. I also dabble in other mediums such as paper and paint collage, mostly small works that I hope to use for greetings cards in the near future.

Our shop exhibits the vibrant colors and textures we use to form window ornaments and personal jewelry. Our inspiration comes from our environment, the gardens and the animals we love.
