Glass Artist, Cassandra, Sandy, BeachWith a degree in Environmental Science, I find that I approach art not only aesthetically, but with a scientific eye, enjoying the scientific precision required by working with warm glass. I started working with pottery in the 1970's at Sertoma Art Center in Raleigh, NC, continuing through the first half of the 1980's. During the 80's I changed course to work with stained-glass off and on through the early 2000's. I began dabbling in fused glass during my pottery and stained-glass years, but was not satisfied with the results until 2008, when I created my first set of pendants. My truly intensive study and practice of fusing glass came in the last few years, through private lessons with a Tucson glass artist and further studies at Tucson Stained Glass. Then working on my own, combined with intensive workshops such as “Slumpfest 2010”,  (where I studied with glass legend Dan Fenton), Slumpfest 2011 with Carrie Strope, as well as a summer 2011 "Fusing With Recycled Glass Workshop" with noted glass artist and author Brad Walker, fusing and casting glass quickly became my primary artistic focus and effort. In 2013, I was invited to participate in the International Tartan Festival in Glascow, Scotland.

I am a member of the Artists Studios at Fearrington Village. We currently hold two artist shows and sales per year, usually in April and October.  Visit our Facebook Page  and/or our Blog for up-to-date news.

In 2011, 10 of my pieces were selected to appear in the juried 2011 Slumpworks Design Gallery.

I have lived in Chatham County, NC, for over 20 years. Other artistic endeavors while here have included fiber art, primarily felting, and jewelry-making. In addition to working with warm glass, I am a website designer and yoga instructor.
