I am inspired by manipulating glass producing different textures, color, transparencies and flow. Since starting my journey as a glass artist, I continually am amazed at how glass transforms and dances as it becomes part of a stained-glass art panel or when it is fused under high heat in a kiln. I enjoy working with several types of glass including sheet glass, frit (glass chips), stringers (glass strips), and painting with glass powders. I have interest in making both stained glass and fused glass art. In stained glass, I often embed gemstones or other items into a piece to create what I call a “window to the soul”. I am passionate about fused glass as well and firing it at different temperatures in the kiln to create different effects. My hope is that my art showcases glass as an art medium for all to love as much as I do.
This fused glass rolling wave is made with multiple layers of light and dark turquoise glass to simulate an ocean wave. Powder and chips of glass are carefully arranged to simulate ocean spray. Multiple kiln fusings occurred at different temperatures to provide depth and texture. The finished glass piece is secured onto a wood art panel for a different framing experience.
