Class Description:

This class will be held in two afternoon sessions.

The first session will be learning about the many ways this medium is used to create art pieces. We will briefly touch on the history of this ancient craft and the contemporary artists that have made this once again a popular art form. I will provide the glass and the tools for this class. We will use this session to cut and assemble designed glass cabochons. At the end of this afternoon, I will take the cabochons to my studio to be fused in a glass kiln.

The second afternoon will be to attach findings and elaborate the piece(s) with extras to complete a finished product(s).

The end result of these sessions will be a creative and functional neck piece that will be an original addition to any wardrobe.


Instructor Biography:

I have spent the majority of my life in Montana. I have 2 children and 4 amazing grandchildren. I have a post graduate degree and had the privilege of spending 28 years teaching elementary art education.

I began my glass exploration over 20 years ago. My large fused glass art pieces are designs that enhance contemporary spaces. Creating jewelry is a fun by-product of this medium.

Glass is not my only passion. I explore and create in different art mediums and have had my art juried into different shows. My art has been purchased nation wide and I am currently a contributing artist displaying in the Frame Hut Gallery in Billings, Montana.

In 2022, I sold my Montana home and have relocated to the Terravita Community in Arizona where I will continue to pursue my creative passions.
