My Journey into Art Glass

When I was a senior in high school, my mother, ( painter and college art professor), took me to the stained glass class she was taking. I remember thinking I wasn't very good at cutting, grinding, OR soldering. Nonetheless, when I finished my multi-colored tulip on a background of swirly blue glass, I loved it! And so my glass career began.

Some years later I took a job in Washington state where I saw the works of many glass masters - including Chihuly. When I moved to the California coast, I took a fused glass session with my old stained glass teacher, and found a new use for my favorite medium! I turned my 2-car garage into a glass studio, bought a kiln and lots of glass, and got started fusing.

At my local glass store I took a class in lampworking - melting rods of glass at a torch and winding the hot glass onto a coated-metal rod to create glass beads. Yet another great glass art discovery! I make beads with surface designs, sculpted beads, shiny beads, etched beads, etc. Then I create jewelry with them. I also make ornaments - hollow beads with surface designs or shaped hollow beads - like fish.
