After retiring in 2009, Amy decided to switch gears from her scientific passions to her artistic passions. Dabbling first in ceramics, then the science and art of warm glass became her focus. In Nov 2016, Amy installed 3 fused glass wall panels in the Harrington Hospital Chapel, Southbridge, MA.
Warm glass is glass that has been fired in a kiln at a range of high temperatures from 1,200 °F to 1,550 °F in order to fuse together thin sheets of layered glass to create patterns or images. Slight differences in temperature have distinct effects on the resulting glass texture and shape.
Fused/warm glass is used to create jewelry, bowls, plates, vases, ornaments and decorative pieces.
