We are always encouraging our students to think out of the box. And this works tremendously as students gain inspiration from things that speak to them in a personal way.

In this case, it was a quilt decoration, a gorgeous work of it’s own, that lent its energy to a labor of love in glass!

Quilting becomes inspiration for multi-media stained glass art.

By integrating fusing with traditional cold working techniques, our student Sonia was able to adapt the challenges of translating intricate design into glass.

Fusing glass components solved the problems of texture and detail.

Twisted wire and bead work became the final embellishment and added a delicate sense of whimsy to the beautiful glass. The wispy branches seem to sway in front of glass buildings!

Side by side, inspiration and results of perspiration! Just fabulous!

Congratulations Sonia on a fabulous piece of glass work!
