Artist Statement

I love the playful game between light and glass. Light flirts with the surface of the glass changing its color and enhancing its texture. I look for depth as the light passes through the layers of glass. Some of my pieces are whimsical. My jewelry is a mixture of dichroic glass patterns, a combination of fluid glass, or a pouring of enamels. When I create a functional piece, I want it to bring life to its purpose. Fused glass offers me a plethora of materials to explore. The kiln work brings all the magic together, melting, blending and shaping the final piece.

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.

Warm glass art 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.
