Janet Dauphin is a lifelong artist who has worked in a variety of mediums, including clay, textiles, and watercolor. Now she has discovered the joy of creating fused glass pieces. She works in her barn studio on her small-herd alpaca farm in Mansfield Center. 

Artist Statement:
Glass is neither a liquid nor a solid. Instead, it is an "amorphous solid"--somewhere between those two states. And, when conditions are right, pieces of glass can be fused together to create exciting new forms. I first became enamored with glass as a young child, working next to my mother in her stained-glass studio. I learned to cut, grind, and piece together glass; skills which came in handy when, as an adult, I began to experiment with fusing glass using an old pottery kiln. A few years later I purchased a dedicated fusing kiln and am always honing my talents. No two pieces of glass are alike, and I study it before I put it in place. Magic happens inside the kiln. Colors change, shapes shift, and new artwork is born!
