By drawing inspiration from places that I have visited or live within , I use my glass work as a way to creatively interpret the ever present beauty touches my soul. I use light, color, and form to create a sense of place in my work.

“My work explores the expressive possibilities of glass through variation in color, texture, light, and atmosphere.  By drawing inspiration from nature, I use my glass work as a way to creatively interpret the ever-present beauty that surrounds us all.  I use light, color and form to create a sense of place in my work.  My hope is that the work will spark a fond memory and bring a sense of wonder and joy within each viewer.”

Amanda’s work varies in size, subject matter, and techniques.  She works from her own photographs and/or watercolor paintings to create her landscape series.  There is no use of enamels or paints in her work.  Layers of imagery are created by using various forms of glass materials.  Each piece is then fired several times in a glass kiln to achieve the final sculptural piece.”
