Mimi Boston - Showing Artist
Mimi Boston makes fused glass bowls, platters and decorative art objects as well as glass necklaces and most recently mixed media pieces of glass over original prints. She is both a fused glass artist and a printmaker. Mimi majored in art history and enjoyed a financial career before returning to her love of art. She has been a glass artist for more than ten years. Much of her inspiration comes from the play of light on water or light on leaves. Dappled light, the contrast of shade and light, is a frequent image in her mind as she creates.

Toni Palmer - Showing Artist
My passion is Kiln-Formed Glass and I just can't get enough time in the studio! I enjoy making everything from functional art, such as bowls, plates, candle holders and flower arrangers to abstract wall, window and table-top art, using a combination of glass chunks, chips, powders, and sheet glass. What I especially love about kiln formed glass is that it appeals to my innate sense of balance. The process calls for both imagination and logic, as once the piece is designed the journey is nowhere near over. In order to anticipate the end result, I must visualize the different phases the glass will go though as it heats to between 1400-1700 degrees, forms one piece, and slowly cools. It always takes multiple firings to achieve the desired effect for the finished piece. There is more of this artist's work on this web site; click here to see it.
