Diane’s art consists of fusing shapes and colors in a kiln, resulting in striking and dramatic images. The process involves placing smaller pieces of glass on a larger piece and heating them to their melting temperature in a kiln so they fuse together.
Diane makes good use of her background as a biologist to create pictures of frogs, dragonflies, birds and other creatures. She has taken several weekend courses in flame working glass at the Corning Museum of Glass, and in 2013 took a week-long course in fused glass.
To honor Diane as November’s Artist of the Month, Riverside Artisans is holding a free raffle of her work. The winner will receive an original fused glass owl. Just stop by the shop at 191 W. 1st St. in the Canal Commons in downtown Oswego to fill out a raffle ticket to register for the drawing at the end of the month. No purchase is necessary. The winner will be notified at the end of November.
