Hand sculpted art glass individually created in a coordinated concert of the artist’s hands, glass and heat
Darleen Nixon has been a glass artist since 1998. Living on San Juan Island off the coast of Washington, much of the inspiration for Darleen’s Designs comes from the natural beauty of the ocean that surrounds her. Her studio offers a serene and creative environment tucked quietly away in the woods where deer, raccoons and otters visit often. She continues to explore the endless possibilities of manipulating the molten glass into the intricate designs of her glass art.
Darleen has studied with some of the leading glass artists in the United States and is a member of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers and the Glass Art Society. Her work is carried in galleries throughout the U.S.
Her work is complex in design and yet contemporary in presentation. Each piece of fused glass is hand cut, assembled and fused together in an initial firing in the kiln. In a second kiln firing the glass is then slumped into its final form. Each piece is signed by the artist. The result – unique glass art that will add elegance and drama to any home.
