This May, we look at Nancy Weisser as our Featured Artist. Nancy brings an ethereal element to her glass art by a skillful use of powdered frit. Her images infuse serenity and dreamlike elements to her line drawing-based pieces.

An award winning artist, Nancy also teaches her styles and techniques in her Maryland-based studio or in workshops and classes around the country. Since the early 1980’s, Nancy has focused her artistic efforts on glass as a medium. She has earned recognition in the the New Glass Review as one of the top 100 artists in past years and turned her home-based stained glass commission business into a successful glass studio in Kensington, Maryland.

Nancy’s work ranges from glass thread sculpture, through frit-based fused glass pieces and large scale installation art. She believes in experimenting with the medium (something that is readily apparent in her wide variety of styles) and never being afraid of trying new things.

Nancy has taught several classes here at Ed Hoy’s and we look forward to seeing her creations and those of her students each time she visits us.
