Flowers of Hope
 Artist’s Reception
 1-4pm on Saturday the 24th.
A big THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed! 
 Last year we broke another record
and I’m confident that we can do it again this year
but we’re not there yet!


I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

It’s been very busy around here with a show at Valley View Vineyard, Taste of Summer, “Celebrate” at Art Presence, the awesomely successful yard sale, and a couple of fun commissions.

One commission was for Westminster Presbyterian Church here in Medford.  They wanted two large bowls for the baptismal font in their church. Pastor Barnabas Sprinkle met with me and liked the colors in a set of coasters I had made….and we went from there.

Another adventure I got involved with this year is doing a piece for the Oregon Wine Experience “Art on the Wall”. Proceeds go to benefit Children’s Miracle Network.   Canvases are given out to local artists and then auctioned off at the event.  I haven’t really painted with acrylics in over 20 years but I made a fused glass tile for the center of the canvas then painted the border.  Rules say it can be any kind of art as long as it’s attached to the canvas.

So, yes I know, summer is a busy time.
I have some great ideas for classes
and workshops coming up soon!

You can still come in and make Flowers of Hope panels,
Try Fusing!
or other projects during our

Wednesday and Saturday workshops




It is that time of year when we schedule fewer classes.  Summer is such a busy time.  I know, it’s hard to fit it all in.  It goes so fast!  It is also a time when I have the opportunity to go out and promote our glass studio so that we can continue to bring you new classes and techniques.


We will continue to do our Flowers of Hope, Try Fusing! (OUR NEW PAINTING WORKSHOPS!) and open workshops on most regularly scheduled days.  You can always go to the website to see if there is a workshop scheduled.  If we have special events they will be listed.  


calendar schedule



Most of our easier classes such as Dichroic Jewelry, Table Lamps, Cabinet Knobs and Fused Glass Switchplates can be scheduled during workshop time as well as the dragonfly, butterfly and daisy dish casting forms.  Please email or call for availability. 






Even if you’ve never done any glass fusing before you can make an 8″ x 8″ fused panel to donate to Flowers of Hope.
$15 buys you a base piece of glass, access to all frits, stringers and scrap glass, hanging hardware and firing. Come in and try your hand at fusing and find out how easy and fun it can be. You’ll also be doing a wonderful thing for a woman going through a tough time.



 The same class only you get to keep it! Try fusing and see if you like it! Learn about using frits, stringers and noodles in this easy workshop!
FLOWERS OF HOPE / TRY FUSING! workshops are available during any regularly scheduled Wednesday or Saturday morning  10a-12p Workshop

        Please call or email to reserve your space!
