This was a gift for my sister. It arrived quickly, and in perfect condition. Very beautiful work!

These are the most beautiful knobs. Totally unique and definitely worth the wait to get them shipped over from the US.

I bought this as a gift, but it's so beautiful, I think I might have to get one for myself!
Creativity Provides Rest for the Soul
I started fusing glass about 7 years ago. I took one class and the rest was trial and error. I became so addicted and was making so many pieces, I had to start doing shows and consigning with galleries, or we were going to have to get a bigger house. I got incredible compliments at shows and the galleries sold my items quickly. My addiction only grew from there and I knew I had to find another outlet. I had never heard of Etsy until 2011 and decided I'd give it a go. Having my shop allows me to get more creative, post items, which helps me realize what people like and don't like. But, it seems there is something for everyone.
The process of creating an item ranges from simple to much more complicated, depending on what I'm making. I start with designing my item. I then choose the glass I will use, which comes in large sheets--all different colors, textures, types (such as art glass or dichroic glass). I may make something simple which requires simple cuts or make something more complicated, requiring much more hands-on time to create. Everything goes into the kiln at some point and is fired at various temperatures (depending on what's being made). Complete time in the kiln is a minimum of 12 hours. My one-of-a kind knobs I create are closer to 48 hours and often require 2-3 firings in my kiln.
I feel so blessed to have this wonderful outlet of creating a variety of functional, decorative items that seems to make so many people happy.
I'm happily married, have one adult daughter and am a registered nurse. I live in the beautiful state of Oregon with quick access to the mountains and the coast. My hobbies are exercising, creating healthy recipes and fusing glass.
If you send me a convo, I make every effort to respond ASAP. However, I do also have an outside job, so I may not get back to you immediately. Thanks for understanding.
