Fine Craft / Artisan
The Silos at Sawyer Yards
After selling residential real estate in Houston for 35+ years, I knew that I wanted to do something creative. My mother and grandmother were both artists; so there had to be some seed of creative talent somewhere not yet nurtured. Years ago a teaching studio for fused glass opened one block from my home. After a few courses, I knew what I wanted to do in my "next" career. Working with hot glass became my passion. It was meant to be. We were created in God's image. He created the beauty around us that is so inspiring for an artist-the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, the snow-capped mountains, the deep blue oceans. The beauty which surrounds us motivates me to also create. The joy of working with hot glass-mixing colored glass that is transparent or opalescent with design elements beyond imagination and then watching what happens when the glass is heated is exciting. What is fused glass? It is a little science, a little math, a little creativity and a little magic!
