Business: Creekside Glass
From: Alta Vista, KS
Kristin Collier; I am a warm glass artist and live on a farm near Alta Vista, Kansas. My full-time job is in the newspaper business as a production artist. A few years ago I purchased my first kiln and my journey with fusing glass began. With very little training, but a desire to develop my own style, I have found my passion in creating landscapes and botanical pieces. I also create functional art, such as bowls, plates and vases.
As a warm glass artist, I use sheet glass, frit and powders to make my kiln fired glass pieces. Fused bowls, plates, hanging panels, and stand up panels, are designed, cut and fused. Pot melts might be found in my finished art work also.
