Memorials by Barbara
I first stepped into a hot glass studio at Carnegie-Mellon University in 1980 and knew immediately with a crystal clear vision that I wanted to work with glass as my artistic medium. When I first started blowing glass, I felt so comfortable and knew that I could really express my ideas with this material. Glass can be blown, cast in molds, and shaped with many different techniques. I am inspired by pure color. I just love color and glass is the perfect vehicle that showcases the colors that I choose. Nature and wildlife are also great sources of my inspiration. The planets, diversity of colors, climates, creatures and conditions provide us with places for our spirits to ponder, rest and to dream.
