                              Artist Statment

     Flameworking, fusing, glassblowing, and cold assembly are the methods I use to create my art. The inspiration for my designs is born out of my passion for the interplay of light with the myriad combinations of color and shape that are possible in this medium. The natural luster of glass, which is "liquid" even in its solid state, is a fascinating melding of science and aesthetics.
    I have been working with glass since 2004, and have been fortunate enough to enjoy the educational enrichment opportunities offered by The Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass. Loren Stump, Caitlin Hyde, Suellen Fowler, Margaret Neher, Kathleen Sheared, Miriam Di Fiore, and Roger Thomas are only a few of the talented glass masters I have had the pleasure to learn from and who have influenced my development as a glass artisan.
    In 2005, my husband joined me by starting to create stained glass pieces and later that year he took his first class in glass blowing. His interest in that area was fueled by a desire to do roll-ups, a technique in which a glass tile is first fused, and then taken into the hot shop to be blown into a vase or bowl. The name comes from the fact that the glass is "rolled up" on the blowpipe. He has worked with Mark ditzler, Jonathan Schmuck, Harry Seaman, and many of the staff at the Studio of CMOG. A strong influence on both of us has been the work of Klaus Moje.
    Our work ranges from whimsical to utilitarian. All dishes are food safe and should be washed in mild soap and water. Requests for commissioned work and custom pieces are welcome. Please forward comments or requests to me via e-mail at: Cheryl@theladysgotglass.com
    Thank you for your interest.
