Art Glass Array — Lisa Becker (St. Charles, Missouri)

Lisa creates kiln-formed glasswork using powdered and crushed glass to feature chemical reactions, crackling techniques and stenciling. She uses fusible raw sheet glass, powdered glass and frit.

She has been working with glass since 1999, and finds it to be a challenging and rewarding medium. Lisa constantly is learning the unique properties and abilities of the medium. "A quality glass craftsman must have expertise in compatibility, gravity, temperature control, as well as color placement and reaction,” she says. "These skills are necessary to the integrity of the piece."

Her designs are inspired by the shapes and textures of nature, the lines of architecture and the depth of the human form. "Working layer by layer, I feel these forms connect flawlessly with glass,” Lisa says.
