Brenda has been perfecting her techniques with No Days Liquid Fusing Adhesive
for quite a few years. She shares those techniques in an article she wrote
that was published in the Fall 2009 issue of Glass Patterns Quarterly,
Frit Painting – A Fall Leaf Plate. The article is available here.
|Brenda Smith holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Brigham Young
University. She loves art and making things with her own hands. Brenda
has been in the art field for more than thirty years, with an emphasis on
glass the last twelve. She began with leaded glass windows, then went on
to stained glass and copper foil, building triple-glazed windows, and
performing commissioned work for business and residential clients.
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 is adorned with glass now. Brenda’s resume includes glass
painting, jewelry boxes, custom glass tiles, mosaics, and consulting
work across the United States.
Brenda, who has four grown children and five grandchildren, lives in Fullerton,
California, with her husband Gary. Brenda’s glass
work can be found in the United States, Japan, and Brazil.
