Michele – Glass Fused Art
I was searching for a new artistic medium seven years ago when I took a glass fusing class and I knew I had found what I was looking for. I enjoy experimenting with different techniques and types of glass, and utilizing a range of temperatures to achieve the depth of the glass in a way that brings out detail. Some of my pieces are fired multiple times to achieve depth, and to enhance vibrant colors. Displaying different materials with glass such as wood, rock, and copper is also an exciting way to take glass to new levels. My inspirations range from scenic, natural destinations with orcas and humpback whales, to the still-life charms of local wineries. I recently studied with established local artist Ann Cavanaugh. My work is now showing at Arts of Snohomish in Snohomish, WA and at Misty Mountain Furniture in Sand Point, ID. It has also been seen at the Peace Arch Festival in Blaine, WA and the Port Angeles WA Crabfest.
