From Shows to Etsy
I sold my glass at shows, markets, and festivals for many years. Then in 2007 my new love introduced me to Etsy. She, and I, and Etsy have done well in the years since. While there are some good things about selling in person, I love having customers all over the world.
My art started out with the written word. While I had a degree of success writing fiction, I came to see that my approach was very visual, and realized that I needed to work in a visual medium. I have tried many, but after a friend showed me the basics of stained glass, glass became the main focus of my work. For me, working with glass is like working with light, which is why I work mostly with transparent glass. But I like too many materials, such as wood, metals, and things I pick up in the forest and on the beach, to stick strictly to glass, so I combine it with other things when possible.
Over the past few years, I've found that my best sellers on Etsy are rainbows and wind chimes, so the shop has become heavily oriented toward those. A more recent addition is the Science and Medicine section, reflecting my lifelong amateur interest in science and health.
Owner, Maker, Designer, Imaginator
I've been a self-employed artist for twenty-two years, working mostly in glass. I live in Oregon in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. My art often revolves around nature and spirit, and humor when possible.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
+++If you are ordering from the UK, please read "Additional Policies and FAQs" below.+++
I ship USPS, either First Class or Priority Mail, depending on the item. The shipping cost approximates actual shipping charges, plus a small amount to offset packaging costs, and insurance. I try to break even on shipping overall, and not make a profit on it. Most of the time I ship within one or two business days, but sometimes circumstances might make it take a bit longer -- if there is going to be much of a delay, I will let you know. If you would like your order sent to a different address than your own, please temporarily change your ship-to address.
Refunds and Exchanges
Additional policies and FAQs
I generally ship to addresses outside the United States using USPS International First Class Mail. If you prefer something be mailed by International Priority Mail (which costs considerably more), please contact me.
Frequently asked questions
I work in a non-smoking house with cats. If you have other allergy or chemical-sensitivity issues please contact me through Etsy's Conversation system.
Can I hear your Wind Chimes?
You can hear the sound of a representative sample of my wind chimes on my blog at: http://azurefireart.blogspot.com
Are Your Wind Chimes Durable?
People are naturally curious about the durability of glass in wind. I take extra care with the glass pieces to keep them strong. I have had them out in heavy winds on the Oregon Coast without breakage, and I've gotten no reports over the years of any problem. Of course, glass can break, so I recommend taking them down during high winds. Be sure to hang them securely so they cannot fall of the hook they are hung on, and place them so they won't bang into any hard surfaces, and don't drop them.
Sending as a Gift?
If you would like your order sent to a different address than your own, please temporarily change your ship-to address. Otherwise if I need to change the address, there could be additional charges, because shipping is calculated based on location. I am happy to enclose a gift card: just let me know what you would like written on it. I enclose a packing slip with each order which does not include prices.
