Salutations to all those interested in truly handmade objects. I've been a maker for decades and continue to expand my creative vision through the mediums of metal and enamel and whatever other materials I choose to combine with them. The permanence and vibrant color of glass fused to metal immediately appealed to me as the perfect combination to use with my metalwork. Permanence is a key word here. I like to make things that will last, heirloom quality objects to be enjoyed for a lifetime, and beyond.
I've been making things for as long as I can remember. With encouraging parents, I attended a variety of art related classes at local museum schools when I was a child. Later years found me in junior college classes, then university classes, then associates and workshops added fuel for the fire. During this time I was also earning a living from my acquired skills, and I have continued to do so for decades. I love what I do and what I make, and I believe the work should speak for itself....hopefully, you will agree. See more of my work at JoanBazzel.com
