Kathryn’s journey with glass started in 2000. After working for years with fibers and surface design to create one-of-a-kind clothing, Kathryn turned to a new medium - glass - in 2000. Now, instead of laying cloth, she layered glass, metal, enamel, frit and murrini to create another form of wearable art in the form of jewelry. While Kathryn sketches some of her jewelry designs, she enjoys a more experimental approach when making her beads that involves combining different colors of glass and metals in the flame and observing the results. Being a visual person, she is always aware of colors, shapes, and textures and finds inspiration in just about everything she sees. In 2013 Kathryn added another twist to her jewelry art; she began to explore copper enameling and today many of her creations include both glass and copper. All of her pieces are one of a kind, and the signature elements of Kathryn's designs include many layers of glass and metals and the inclusion of murrinis (cross sections of patterned glass canes) and other decorations. Kathryn is an active member of the Arizona Society of Glass Beadmakers, The International Society of Glass Beadmakers, Arizona Designer Craftsmen and Sonoran Arts League. Her work has also been published in many jewelry art magazines and journals.
