Susan Knecht: Blown Glass, Studio #201
Easily the most dazzling studio at Lowe Mill, Susan Knecht’s space is filled with enchanting blown glass creations that the artist and her team bring to life every day. Beautiful window displays greet you as you enter Sue’s studio, but behind the displays is the real excitement: Two molten-hot kilns where Susan melts together colored glass fragments before blowing and sculpting them into beautiful objects such as glasses, lamps, ornaments, and even chandeliers. See this fascinating process and the incredible resulting creations for yourself in Susan Knechts’s studio, # 201!
Glass is durable, yet fragile. Its subtleties constantly challenge me and allow me to create artwork with optical textures, great depth, and perpetual movement.
