Carlyn Ray - Glass Artist
From the moment I saw molten glass I was captivated. To me, blowing glass is an art form from beginning to end. The material itself is a mystery. Molten sand, at the temperature of lava, formed with ones breath, hand, and gravity into a crystal delicate form.
I first saw glass being blown as a young girl and was immediately draw in! I am choosing a path which involves creating work for specific sites and spaces. I desire to create work which emits creative energy beyond the outline of the piece. In knowing the nature of the environment for which the piece is being created, I am better able to conceptualize a piece.
I really enjoy making custom pieces. I love working with the colors, reflections, and light; a space can be completely transformed by this molten material!
