“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.
