BECKY COOK – CREATIVE FUSION GLASS

March 26th—May 4th, 2018

Reception on Thursday, April 26th, 4:30–6:30pm at the Niche in Founders Hall.

Becky Cook – Creative Fusion Glass

Becky Cook creates jewelry, sculptural and functional works in kiln-formed glass. Inspired by fellow artists, nature and everyday life, her intention is to create unique works of art that bring joy and beauty to the world. Emotionally evocative color combinations, layered glass effects and reactions between colors contribute to the radiant energy of each piece. The artist enjoys the combination of art and science that kiln-formed glass requires; layering a rainbow of glass colors and manipulating them with heat and various cold working techniques. For Cook, fused glass mirrors the human experience: various colors and shapes, with unique qualities, that can be fused into one beautiful work of art.

As a child, Cook lived near Corning Glass in Corning, NY, where she was introduced to glass art at a young age through family outings and school trips.  Her passion for glass art has grown and she continues to hone her trade through seminars, online learning and first-hand creative experimentation.  She now lives in Hebron and has been working part-time in glass for nearly 10 years.  See more of her work on Facebook at facebook.com/creativefusionglass.
