About Fused Glass:
Each piece is individually made by Judith Geiger using sheets of colored glass. Every
shape or dot of color is cut to the desired shape, layered on a base piece of glass and kiln
fired to approximately 1500 degrees. All of the small, cut pieces melt into one smooth,
permanent piece of glass. Sometimes, wire or copper foil is imbedded in the glass
layers before firing.
Most fused glass pieces are mounted on polychromed masonite and framed in square profile natural ramin wood shadow-box style frames. Other pieces are mounted on black wrought-iron stands.
Judith Geiger is well known for her colorful, fanciful paintings on silk. She is translating that same unique design sense to these fused glass pieces.
A Note from the Artist:
"My interests lie in creating narrative imagery set against a backdrop of bold, bright graphic design elements. I try to make the ordinary into something different and unexpected."
As an artist, Judith Geiger has chosen to express the lighter, whimsical side of life. A B.A.
in painting from the University of California at Santa Barbara's College of Creative Studies and an M.F.A. in textiles from the Rochester Institute of Technology's School for American Craftsmen in New York provided the theoretical foundation. The
artist's seaside hometown of Santa Barbara provides much of the inspiration.
Judith's paintings on silk and licensed designs have been exhibited and sold
worldwide. For more information on Judith Geiger's original artwork, product designs
