About TheGlassRainbowShop

Sales 2,577
On Etsy since 2016

I finally figured out what I was meant to do...

I'd love to be able to say that I studied design and art or that I grew up in a creative environment but that's not me. I was in the medical field most of my life. I'm a logical thinker; very structured and organized. I have never considered myself as creative. That all changed in 2015, when I discovered my true passion. I know that sounds cliche but I can't find a better way to explain it.

I started classes in kiln formed glass (fusing) and I became obsessed. Glass fusing involves cutting sheet glass and constructing a design. Once the design phase is complete, it's put into the kiln and fired to molten temperatures. Then specific kiln schedules are followed for cooling, depending on the desired results which are truly spectacular. The vivid colors and infinite shapes are always (well, almost always) amazing.

Along with the kiln, there are many different pieces of equipment used to manipulate the glass even further; grinders, saws, sanders and polishers. There have been many nights that I couldn't sleep because I was so excited to try a new technique. I am blessed to have an 1,800 sq ft studio with multiple kilns and hoards of glass. I used to look at glass as something cold, hard and razor-sharp (it is, I have plenty of cuts to prove it), but now I look at glass as warm and beautiful.

I still have plenty to learn, as do most artists, but I'm extremely pleased at my current place in the creative world. I hope you follow me as I continue to grow.

Frequently asked questions
What shipping options do you offer?

I normally ship within one business day, unless otherwise stated in the listing description. FREE Shipping is via UPS Ground. If you require another shipping carrier, please feel free to message me and we'll work it out.

How soon will you ship?

I love to shop online but hate waiting for my packages :-) I will ship your order within 1 business day and if you order prior to 10 AM, I'll get it shipped out the same day (I'm on East Coast time). However, some of my items may be "In Production." If that's the case, the individual listings will be clearly marked, if more than a day is required for shipping.

Do you accept returns?

Sure, just let me know within 3 days of receipt of your item. Please return within 14 days. Unless the item arrived damaged, I ask that you cover the cost to ship the item back. I never really had a true understanding of the saying, "starving artist," until I started doing art, full time :-) If the item was damaged during transit, please contact me as soon as possible. Please save all packaging and take pictures of the damage so that I may file an insurance claim.
