I grew up in the industrial ceramic industry and have recently retired from Tosoh Quartz a glass machining and glass blowing company for the high tech industry in Portland, Oregon. As a Tosoh Quartz instructional designer I needed to learn the basics of glass blowing to begin development of training materials. I got hooked and now I am a full time retired glass artist.
My bead work is just therapy and has developed into creating components for my glass fusing. I am passionate about landscapes and pieces that tell stories. I joined the Glass Guild two years ago and have learned no much. This will be my first Gathering of the Guilds and look forward to meeting you all.
