Melinda Gray, Christine Morlock, Amy Neiman,
Julie Orchard, Diana White & Wilma Wyss
Berkeley, California
Sawyer Rose
Fairfax, California
Six Local Berkeley Mosaic Artists came together to showcase their diverse mosaic talents in this show. Pieces ranged from a life-sized self potrait, trompe l'oeil sculptures, a mosaic surfboard, collaged mosaics, and even a mosaic-covered guitar! This artist uses glass to illuminate issues in the local flora and fauna. She creates glowing lightboxes that appear to echo to the plants she pays homage to. She wants to bring to light the plights of planting non-native species, and the native species that are endangered by these "exotic" plants.

Viven has been a long time customer with us, as well as selling her work with us for some time now. She creates beautiful, shimmering fused glass pieces for the home that are inspired by the Northern Lights of her childhood. She creates the ususal bowls and dishes, but also drawer knobs and pulls, and even fused bathroom sinks. Susanna provides us with her excellent teaching skills in many of our stained glass classes, but in her free time she creates beautiful and original art. Using the medium of stained glass, Susanna subverts expectations by using unusual and surprising subjects in her work, as well as using stained glass in ways you wouldn't expect.

Together they paint on silk and then make prints from these paintings, and the product is truly beautiful! Trained in glass at the Pilchuck Glass Center when it was only in its second year of operation, Elaine Hyde's work is truly stunning and unique.

Marco Polo Designs
Portland, Oregon
The Glass Forge
Grants Pass, Oregon
Jane Barthelemy went to Italy to be an Opera singer, but while there she learned how to create glass beads in the Italian style. When she retired from Opera and traveled back to the United States, she started a studio to continue her glass production. Since then, Marco Polo has made some of the loveliest glass jewelry on the market today. Started in 1998 by three glassblowing experts at their prime, Maurice "Butch" Kreuzer, Nathan Sheafor, and Lee Wassink, the Glass Forge has since then gone on to become an established glass studio, creating amazing glass pieces, both beautiful and functional.
Fred Imhoff
Portland, Oregon
Ron Hinkle
Buckhannon, West Virginia
Working with glass since 1998, the artist now creates his pieces in his own studio in Portland, Oregon. He values clean form and minimalism in his work, and so do his many customers. This artist's story is truly amazing. Captivated by glass since he was a child, Ron Hinkle learned glass blowing at a major factory, but created his own pieces on the side. Soon his pieces became so popular he quit the factory to open his own studio, building it from the ground up with no capital, growing to become an extremely sucessful artist.

Each of these vibrant pieces is hand fused by the artist, combining colors and designs in unique and beautiful ways. His pieces are suitable for eating, although many may find them far too pretty to use! Nawal Motawi started this workshop in 1992 along with her brother, Karim, and learned about tiles from many sources, leading them to create the distinctive tiles they make today. Motawi has expanded to include more people, but their values and aesthetic has stayed the same.
