To find my studio, look for the parking lot directly across from Indianola Informal K-8 school on Weber Rd. At the NE corner of the parking lot, there is a gate which leads directly to the street by my house. Signs will direct you to my door, which can be seen from the parking lot gate. Please DO NOT park on the small side streets around the park directly in front of my house. Once you enter my studio, you’ll find me demonstrating the process of cutting and kiln-fusing glass, as well as making clay molds. I will show the uses of many glass elements; glass paint and powders, glass chalk, stringers and “noodles” that add depth and texture to finished pieces.
Working in glass for over 10 years, Beth Himsworth explores new ways to cut, bend and apply glass – providing a sense of depth and serenity. Many years living in South America brought her a deep love of nature and color. Her wall-mounted panels are found in residences, hospitals and universities.
I combine the richness of traditional stained glass with the free-flowing forms of mosaic and fused glass. Initially working in mosaic, I began to add glass pieces adhered to underlying glass then creating fused glass as components to mosaic or free-standing pieces.
I will demonstrate the process of glass fusing: making of a clay mold, cutting glass, putting together a glass project, setting the kiln and cold-working a final project. I will have a variety of pieces in process.
