Carol creates fused glass art for the casual admirer to the most avid collector from her studio in Bozeman Montana. She began working in traditional stained glass almost 20 years ago and shortly thereafter, moved her focus to warm glass. Her work is unique in the quality and attention to detail evident in every design. Through experimentation, fabrication and exploration, she developed her relationship with glass. She finds that the properties of transparency, refraction, and magnification set glass apart from other art mediums. Her work has been described as innovative, fresh, happy and even exquisite. Carol’s work reflects the dynamic play of color, tone and nature of the Northwest where she has resided for over 30 years.
“Art has always been a part of my soul, forever exploring new and different techniques.”
Living in Bozeman Montana, I’m surrounded by inspiration which stimulates my yearning to interpret what I see into what I create. I see fleeting shadows, shapes, textures and color combinations in my surroundings, drawing me to themes found in nature. Vibrant colors, unusual arrangements, sensuous curves and clean, visual layouts define my approach. I strive to incorporate unusual details that break the so-called rules of color and design.
I’m continually enchanted by the almost magical aspect of transforming glass from individual sharp pieces into alluring design elements that plead to be touched. I like to imagine that every piece I make reflects the energy and pleasure I experience during its creation.
