Cheryl Morris of Auxvasse, Missouri, started her career as a graphic artist, but then fell in love with the art of Dichroic Glass glass through her introduction of it at a small shop in Branson, Missouri.
She decided to take her “hobby” to the next level and make a career in the glass arts by combining her love of painting and color to make one of kind art pieces. She is constantly discovering new and exciting ways to keep the pieces fresh.
Today, Cheryl and different family members, travel with her art pieces to many festivals throughout the year….along the way always enjoying meeting new people and fellow artists.
A variety of different types of glass ranging from exotic Dichroic (with its fantastic light and reflecting qualities) to sheets of plain, clear or black glass are used by layering them to establish different shapes, sizes and design. Further steps include cutting, grinding, etching, layering more colors and painting. Different pieces are sometimes multi-fired at different temperatures. Due to variations in the firing process, individual results makes each pendant unique.
