Featured Artist: Leslie Anne Bitgood

For over 40 years, Leslie Anne Bitgood, has been working with glass in all forms initially starting with stained glass doors for the kitchen cabinets. Creating flamework beads for the last twenty years was a natural transition into other aspects of working with glass. Leslie has now been venturing into other forms of glass including, flameworking, glass fusing, mosaics, enameling and jewelry.

December 02, 2000, Leslie turned on the torch for the first time, melted glass onto a mandrel and made her first wonky beads, and Leslie knew she was addicted. Beads, marbles, sculptural work, fused plates, fused whimsical creations, and jewelry are some of the art that she creates.

In 2007, Crazy Woman Glass studio was built behind her home and classes are available for up to three students at a time. This allows for lots of one-on-one instruction.

"There is something very magical in the transformation of sheets or rods of glass into an object that transmits light and colors."
