After fusing her first piece of
glass, Brenda told her husband that she wanted a kiln, to which he and
her sons said, “Youʼll burn the house down!” Their house is still
standing, though, and looks even better. Brenda’s resume includes glass
painting, jewelry boxes, custom glass tiles, mosaics, and consulting
work across the United States.

Brenda enjoys mixing different techniques to come up with unique designs. From painted fused glass pieces to saw cut stained glass and dichroic glass, Brenda puts her personality in her pieces. Her children’s art box was made using No Days Q Stik Mosaic Adhesive. She created four panels and then mounted them on each side of the box. After all the panels were assembled, she grouted, then finished by filling the creation station with coloring books, markers and more!
