Artist Statement

for Wanda K. Tyner:                        


My art reflects my adventurous spirit and passion for exploring and storytelling.  I enjoy the focus and precision it takes to design, combine colors, textures, shapes and techniques to create kiln-formed glass art that can be bright, bold, subtle, or textured.

I am fascinated with the scientific properties of glass and the endless possibilities through kiln-forming.    I incorporate the design principles of balance, focus and harmony while creating unique fused glass artwork and functional food-safe pieces.

I love infusing the vibrant colors from the world in which we live into my art.  My distinctive designs are inspired as I cut glass into geometric and abstract shapes juxtaposing wild, chaotic design elements with serene backgrounds and symmetry creating pattern, movement and form. I manipulate and form the glass shapes with flow, dimension and texture inside my kiln.

Every piece of my artwork has a story that represents nature, a specific subject, a client’s vision, an emotion, an exploration of combining colors and patterns, or my own whimsy
