THE SUZ! GLASS SIGNATURE GALLERY
I LOVE the vivid colors and lush sparkle of kiln fired glass! It is ideal for creating work inspired by the spirit of love and nature. The crystal clear colors catch and reflect light in a radiant manner. Light plays with glass and makes the glass look different ways depending on the viewing angle - like the way love, and interactions with the natural world, change our perceptions. And... like love and nature, glass is simply beautiful!

ALL SEASON ORNAMENTS
I love my ornamental hanging creations! Nothing brings a smile to my face faster than bright colors and twinkling light. Making ornaments for the holidays is a natural for me... and, I just can't bear to put all that beauty away at the end of the season! So... I make ornaments that are suitable for year round use. These whimsical art pieces are designed to hang in your window, or other light filled location, so that you can enjoy the magic of color and light all year long!
Each ornament I make has variations in color and size - like Mother Nature, I make one-of-a-kind items! The ornaments have dimensions in the 3"- 4" range, and some come in assorted color options. Each one of my ornaments is hand signed, packaged individually, and comes with information about the creation of the piece and its maker. CLICK HERE TO VIEW & PURCHASE ALL SEASON ORNAMENTS.

RELIGIOUS ITEMS OF DISTINCTION
I was raised in the deep South, in a small community where religion was central in our lives. The beauty of creation was celebrated regularly and left its mark on me. Over the years my appreciation of faith based communities has grown and deepened, and I cherish the rituals, and the sense of giving and thankfulness, found there. It always feels right to share that love and gratefulness by creating expressions in glass reflective of that special joy!
