ILLINOIS FARMGIRL MAKES GLASS MAGIC

After owning several retail shops with multiple employees for years (where I sold my own handmade jewelry and art glass), one day I looked around me and said "How did this happen?!" The joy of creation had been replaced with stress, paperwork and administrative duties... and let's not forget TAXES! Not one to quit, I trudged along for several more years while the economy's downturn quietly whittled away our savings. When we could no longer sustain the shops, we closed them. A blessing in disguise to be sure! I now work at home on our beautiful farm... we had moved to land in rural Illinois from St. Louis to escape the hectic city life and yet I never got to enjoy it!

My life is split fairly equally between my beloved glass shop on Etsy and our farm and private life. I play entrepreneur in the morning, farmgirl in the afternoon, glass artist in the early evening and back to Etsy at night. It might not be for everyone, but I LOVE IT!

Why glass? First, early in life, the magic of church stained glass windows become ever entangled with spirituality in my mind. I developed a reverence for glass and light, light and glass. To this day, I still hear a choir when I see a beautiful window in the light. I love that glass is mysterious, that it is part liquid, part solid and somehow defies the traditional rules. I love that it is only itself and seems to have a mind of its own.

There are amazing glass artists out there, masters of precision and manipulation that get glass to do things you wouldn't think possible. That's not me. I am fascinated with the organic nature of glass, how it "wants" to flow and fall, the raw edge of glass as it comes from the factory that shows how it was melted and how it formed. This is why most of my designs are fairly simple, abstract or allow you to see what the glass itself decided to do when I heated it. I realize I grant glass its own free will, bordering on consciousness... but that is my favorite thing in life... each thing being itself.

Whether it is a chicken being a chicken, me collecting Starbucks cans in the back of my car or glass falling how it "decides" to, there's nothing more honest and therefore joyful than each thing being what it is.

    I am a self-taught artist and entrepreneur living on a farm in Illinois with my awesome hubby and assorted "creatures". My love of glass has always bordered on worship... the magical transformation of light through glass is awe inspiring to me.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept Paypal or direct checkout through Etsy. I do require a minimum of 30% down on custom orders, as obtaining specific glass colors can be quite costly.
Shipping
All glass is shipped double boxed. This has proven to be the most foolproof and safest method for your beautiful glass order. Order deadlines will be discussed individually and vary depending on the project.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not pleased with your order, you are welcome to return it to me undamaged for a full refund of the purchase price. I do not pay for the return shipping unless I have made a mistake in representing the item accurately in my listing. I want you to love your artwork!
Additional policies and FAQs
You can order custom art glass home decor to match your decorating taste and color palette. I am very happy to create a one if a kind piece of artwork just for you, from glass table settings to glass mosaic wall hangings.
