Glass fusing is largely thought of as a craft to dabble in. Colorful glass tiles made by children and hobbyists often come to mind when thinking of fusing. What many don’t know is that the potential for artistic expression with this medium is vast. Mary Lightner’s and Kim Adam’s “Natura a Colori” exhibit explores the wide range of expressive possibilities using various techniques from slumping to "painting" watercolor-like landscapes with glass powders. The goal of this show is to share the unexpected ways in which kiln-formed glass can make a creative statement. This show will be open Friday-Sunday. If you are visiting on a weekday, just ask our staff for a tour of the exhibit. Fused and slumped bowl by Kim Adams.
