About

My interest in fused glass started several years ago. It was an exciting
addictive introduction. Taking classes soon led to acquiring my own kiln and setting up a studio in my south Florida home.

My background has been in the arts. I received my formal training
in design and illustration. For many years I was a competitive
watercolorist and showed in galleries and fairs. I received several
awards and also taught watercolor.

Fused glass and watercolor have similar qualities that fascinate me.
After I design and fire my work it creates flowing colors and

Of course the whole fused glass process takes much longer. Each
piece must be measured, cut, sometimes ground, assembled and fired. All this takes many hours in a kiln reaching 1450 F. Then the
cooling or annealing process has to slowly take place in the kiln to
assure the the glass will not fracture and give it strength. Often
pieces need a second or even third firing to achieve a desired
result.

I continue to take workshops and study my craft. I sell in galleries,
shops, and have provided jewelry for special occasions in my family.
I am enjoying the journey I am on and look forward to sharing
my work with you.
