Cheryl Crane

Glass & Mixed Media Artist

For Cheryl Crane, art is a journey of self-discovery – a reflection of her experience with life, nature, and the spirit in all things. Her work can be raw and organic, or soft and vulnerable – evoking a sense of the feminine in the world.

Cheryl is a glass artist working with fused, slumped, and hand-painted warm glass. Each piece she creates begins with a heartfelt inspiration from nature. Once the imagery and form are set, the technical process begins. Cheryl hand cuts each shape from a sheet of glass and uses a special fusible paint to add minute details, bringing life to each piece. Next, through layering various sizes and colors of crushed glass (frit) and firing each piece several times at high temperatures, color, pattern, and depth emerge. The result is an image that embodies the spirit of the subject matter. Some pieces are further embellished with semi-precious stones, crystals, and various elements from nature, creating a one-of-a-kind work of art.
