Meet the Artist: Kait Rhoads and Amy Rueffert

Eye Vase by Kait Rhoads

Kait Rhoads and Amy Rueffert represent a younger generation of artists who are working with glass in new ways. Rhoads, who innovatively and skillfully interprets traditional Italian techniques of murrine and filigrana in her vessels and wall panels, also makes "soft sculpture" out of cut glass elements assembled with metal wire. Amy Rueffert makes stylishly retro vessels and sculpture that often utilize vintage decals, and she has also worked with glass in photography. Both artists are represented in the Museum’s permanent collection.
