Cutting circles out of large rectangles of glass left me with a lot of very expensive scrap; finding a use for all of the scrap glass was the inspiration for the bowls, platters, plates, luminarias, panels, and tiles.
My husband Larry and I worked in clay together for more than 30 years. About the time I started exploring glass, Larry was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. Doing all of the ceramic tile work by myself was too hard on my shoulders and elbows--better to just make mold tiles for the glass! Learn more about the fused glass process.
Larry retired from clay work and now handles all of the packing, shipping and office management. I do all of the glass work--assisted only by our five cats.
My glass work is sold at galleries and museum shops across the country. If you are ever in Western Oregon, make sure to stop and visit my studio.
Please take a look at the section entitled "Glass Gallery". I'm having lots of fun!
To all of you, thank you for visiting our store.
