HOW I CREATE

Original Glass Art

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Sara Swartz

Sara started working with glass at the age of 14 - making stained glass ornaments. As Sara's journey through life continued, she developed more interest in fabrics and reeds - sewing, upholstery, and basket weaving. She raised her family and ventured back to the medium of glass art.

Sara enjoys all aspects of the glass fusion process - cutting, assembling, kiln-firing several times, and the thrill of each creative piece being presented.

Glass is mesmerizing as light moves and enhances the colors.  Any piece can embellish a home / work environment in many ways....

including a special story or memory.

What I Do

My passion is capturing the glass colors, inviting nature to  inspire my creations. I am motivated to share and bring that sense of beauty, light, color, and joy to each person that comes to my art.


The Process

Each piece begins with a clear glass as the base. All glass is hand-cut and kiln-fired for 12 hours at up to 1500°F. Once the glass is "fused" together and flat, each piece is then slumped on a mold for 8 hours at a slightly lower temperature than the first fire.

What customers are saying...

Sara was absolutely amazing to work with and so enthused to create the custom platter I wanted for my home. She is so friendly, and professional throughout the process.   Thank you so much, Sara!  I love my new serving platter!
