Our featured artist in August is Jennifer Strickland who designs jewelry and other items with fused glass. Fusing glass is her way of taking a break from the everyday work world where she teaches clarinet and saxophone. Her pieces are composed of cut, crushed (also known as frit) and powdered glass which, when fused in a kiln, create a solid piece. By heating the kiln to varying temperatures and using different firing times she can created a myriad of effects. According to Jennifer, upon opening the kiln after firing her first thought is that glass is truly alive and has an ebb and flow of its own. Glass is very tactile. Come and talk with Jennifer to find out more about this beautiful art form and see how many different items she adorns with color and light.
