All About Glass

Artist-in-Residence: Helen Tegeler

Helen Tegeler is inspired by the transitional properties of plants, and extrapolates upon that in her work. From growth patterns and branching to surface textures and patterns, she feels there are infinite design possibilities when interpreting plants in glass. She loves exploring seeds, and the potential they hold for great change. During her 2015 residency, Tegeler worked to expand her techniques with fused glass powders to replicate the physical and visual textures of seeds, something she very recently began exploring. Kiln working will be a new focus for Tegeler, who is traditionally a hot and cold glass artist.
