Wind Dancer


Glass Wall Art
by Anne Wren Nye

Kiln glass wall panel
20″H, 17″W, 1.5″D

Wind Dancer is the first of a series I’m developing about the women of the Southwest. As in most cultures, much was and is done by the women. The stories of the Hohokum, an ancient Pueblo People who once inhabited this area prompted this piece. It came out of a dream complete with title. It, like all my work, is made entirely of glass using my signature technique in which I mix Bullseye glass powder with water, apply to sheet glass with traditional painting tools and kiln fire several times to achieve the perfect combination of color and surface texture. Because it’s all glass, it will not sun fade even in the harshest light. Mounted on a hidden backing of aluminum and hangs easily with a gallery wire. Dry wall hanger included.


“For me each piece I create is a story in the making. I begin with an inspiration, something I’ve seen or often part of a dream. Sometimes it’s just a group of colors that seem to niggle at my brain, teasing me to come play. Once I start working, the search begins for the story. Much like a writer working out a plot, a dialogue develops with each piece sometimes taking me in a completely different direction than I first thought.”

Anne Nye studied fine art at the University of Idaho & California College of the Arts, completing course work for a BFA in painting & worked as a graphic designer for many years. She switched from painting to glass about 20 years ago & is largely self taught. She has developed her own signature method of making glass behave like paint. Each piece is fired multiple times to get just the right colors & surface texture.
