I moved to the mountains of WV, 38 years ago, and still love it. The people are friendly and the environment is breath taking. There are three rivers close by that I can swim or kayak in. My profession was teaching for 22 years and in that time I had children, helped build my home, went to graduate school, and also made pottery. I gradually transitioned from teacher to potter. Since I’ve been a professional potter the past 12 years, I’ve had lots of kiln experience, and melting glass in a kiln was the next step for me. Right now, fused glass is my passion, especially dichroic glass. I’m fascinated with dichroic glass because the colors are captivating and alluring. The glass appears to sparkle and dance because the glass can transmit and reflect wavelengths of color. I cut the glass, layer it, and kiln fire it. I sell locally, at festivals, and at Tamarack.
