Carol Cohen is a glass artist working with fused glass and mosaic techniques. Her glass artwork is created with mostly bold, bright colors and patterns. The results are quite whimsical. One of the methods she uses to create beautiful, original designs in glass is screen printing with enamel. The glass is then fired in an extremely hot kiln to set the images. When complete, she uses this glass to incorporate unique patterns into her finished products. Often times, she uses the “glass parts” that she creates to incorporate into mosaic art. The glass pieces are glued onto a pre-cut MDF wood shape and when dry, grouted. The transformation from before grouting to after is amazing.
Open by appointment.
