GLASS ARTIST (PA)
Susan has lived her life in Montgomery County, PA. She has an Associate Degree in Fine Art from MCCC and has also studied at Tyler School of Art. Her interests in Art and Crafts has been very much influenced by an attitude and acceptance of making do with what materials she has at hand.
Since her youth, Susan has been interested in bottle glass. After taking a class she started collecting bottles and learned how to cut them to use for her mosaic projects. Though recycled bottle glass is not typically used in mosaic making due to its sharp edges, Susan was determined to incorporate them in her designs. Her use of pattern is very much influenced by her practice of consulting the I CHING.
Susan has had her work selected for regional juried shows including the Abington Art Center and Markeim Art Center as well as in group exhibitions organized by the Mosaic Society of Philadelphia, for which she has been a member since its first meeting. MSoP has also given Susan many opportunities to share her knowledge of how to make use of bottle glass. Susan had her first solo show at Art In The Storefront in Ambler last year.
