A Chat with SFN Fused Glass Designs
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
My spacious studio provides for a great classroom experience. You will learn about cutting and layering glass to make functional art pieces for yourself or as a gift. I limit my classes to four people so you will get a lot of attention and assistance from me as needed!
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
I will provide everything you need for this class. I do request that you wear long pants and closed toe shoes. Dressing in layers is helpful, if the kilns are running the temperature can fluctuate quite a bit. Please bring a sealed water bottle if you like to stay hydrated.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
started working with glass for a metal sculptor who wanted to incorporate some color in his work. I was amazed at all the ways you could combine sheets of glass and transform them into beautiful, functional, and artistic forms. I started this business to create art and to teach others!
What do you love most about your job?
I love when someone sees something I have made and just "has to have it". It is so rewarding to create something that speaks to someone. I also love teaching this art form, it is addicting! Even children can learn this, and often they are the ones who push the limits and I learn from them!
