Mediums to Masses glass jewelry and tablewares are designed and handcrafted by Sarah Hirneisen in her home based studio in Oakland, California.

Sarah recently received her Master of Fine Arts in sculpture from Mills college and also has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design with a concentration in glass.

Sarah combines her love of the material glass with that of textiles to create her unique line of jewelry and table-wares. Vintage fabric patterns are hand silk-screened onto each glass piece using ground up glass enamel. The multiple step process is one developed by Sarah. The resulting works give the patterns a second life while creating a juxtaposition of vintage with modern. Due to the variations in the pattern and the hand-made aspect, each piece will have a slightly unique appearance. Sarah is also a proud member of the sfetsy team and etsymom team.

In addition to her functional fused glass line Sarah is also a fine artist. To view her sculpture and installation work please visit her website: www.sarahhirneisen.com

Sarah is also a mom to two sweet little girls and has a wonderful and supportive husband.
