Mary Kelly-Stobert aka Secret Sqirrel Designs

My passion for all things glass was sparked three years ago when I moved to the Mountain community from Southwest Wyoming.  Since then I have "dabbled" in fusing, lampworking, and enamel.  The depth of color is what facinates me and the basic integrity/fragility of the material which withstands the heat of the kiln and torch and wearing of time, but will shatter with a glancing blow or even a sudden temperature change.  Whether transparent or opaque, glass color has a richness that transforms light.

My recent designs are explorations into the art of mixed media.  Using forged metal, enamel, resins, glass and beads of all materials gives my pieces a unique one of a kind charm. Nature both challenges and inspires me.
