I came across this woman's beautiful works while browsing through some 'new' shops a few days ago. She is relatively new to the 'Etsy' family, so I say welcome and I wish you much success.
She uses her talent as a glass artist to both blow and sculpt with glass. Added to that, her choice of colours is stunning! One piece of her work would indeed draw your eye immediately, if placed in a strategic spot in your home.
I am SO fascinated by this art medium. I truly would love to learn how to do this or at least get a shot at it just once.
When my daughter was attending Cornell University I went to Corning glass once and saw some amazing, amazing works of art from years gone by and right up to the present. Somehow, I gravitate to glass art pieces,but I really haven't analyzed why, I just do.

Please go visit her Etsy shop at:

In her own words, here is her bio and description of her art and why she does what she does.....


One striking newspaper ad was all it took to get me into a studio dedicated to teaching the art of glass blowing. And one memorable class was all it took to get me hooked and continually fascinated by glass blowing.
Though I have worked with a variety of media, I have never found one as fulfilling and exhilerating as glass blowing. One of the things I find so satisfying about the art is that the opportunities for learning and experimentation are endless.
I've dedicated a fare amount of time to the subject over the past seven years for it to just be a casual hobby, now I have found a style all my own and its time to put my hard work, embodied in my art, for all the world to see.
I hope you enjoy my labor of love, because at times burns, sweat, and tears have accompanied many of these pieces (literally).
My work is hand-blown or hand-sculpted by me, here in Portland, OR. Each piece is unique and has a character all its own. My work is inspired by nature, an ever evolving exploration of form and shape, and of course individuality, a specialty that no one piece is ever alike.
It is my pleasure to share my passion for this art form with you. My hope is to display a wide arrangement of my many explorations of glass and color. I find it to be one of the greatest joys in my life, not to mention a whole lot of fun!
As a final footnote, let me encourage a visit to her shop and even better, if there's a piece you fall in love with, please purchase. I think these pieces would be wonderful corporate gifts as well.
