Wire & Glass Sculptures
Joy’s fascination/obsession with glass began over a decade ago when she took up flameworking. After creating handcrafted glass beads and one-of-a-kind jewelry, Joy had a desire to go bigger. At that point she began incorporating her glass work with other materials.
Unlike glass beads, there were very few (if any) classes or books to lead the way. It was trial and error from the beginning. With each failure came new insights into working with and around wire. By incorporating the two disciplines, wire sculptures were created.
Joy’s work has been juried into the Kentucky Craft Market Program, the Louisville Artisans Guild and her glass was also juried into the Kentucky Guild of Artists & Craftsmen.
Each creation is unique and individual, which will become a treasured piece for its owner.
