Our Story

I have loved glass for many years (looks like candy!), and started working with glass in 2006. It’s a lot of trial and error at first until you learn exactly what works — and, more importantly, what doesn’t.

I enjoy creating fun and bright things that make people happy or laugh. I design and make each item with great care and attention to detail to ensure it is beautiful and the highest quality. I start by sketching an idea on paper. I then select the colors of glass, cut the glass to size and shape with a variety of glass-cutting tools, assemble/decorate the piece and fire it in one of my kilns. Pieces are often fired to different temperatures or fired multiple times to get the right look. They are then finished by adding ribbon, copper wire, a metal stake, etc. so they are ready to hang or display.

I sell my creations online, at a few select art shows and through more than 200 galleries, museums and gift shops throughout the United States.

I currently live in Bellingham, Wash., with my husband, Chris, and our two cats, Minnie Meow and Meow Bella. We built a studio next to our house, which is where all of my creations are born!

Additional policies and FAQs
Product Color Variation: Due to the nature of glass (irregularity and variation in color), as well as the differences in computer monitors, the color of the actual item may look a little different than pictured in my shop.

Product Availability: I don't always have all items in stock, and may need to make your selection just for you. If this is the case, I will let you know. I typically can complete these orders in a day or two, and get them right in the mail to you. In the event I do not have the glass on hand, I will gladly refund you or give you other color options.

Selection of Items: I may not always have all items currently listed for sale in my shop (for example, I may not have all of my holiday ornaments listed in the off season). If you see an item in my SOLD section or remember seeing it in my shop and would like to order it, please send me a convo. Thank you!

Wholesale Inquiries: If you are interested in purchasing our items for resale for your shop, studio, gallery or store, please send me an email.
