I enjoy putting shapes and colors together, coming up with something simple but elegant or whimsical. I love working with leaves and leaf skeletons, creating interesting shapes and patterns in glass, a wonderful, challenging medium.
Having grown up in the Sonoran desert, I’m drawn to saguaros, ocotillos, palo verdes as a theme. As someone who used to “live on a horse”, I try to work in spirit horses whenever possible.
Faces fascinate me. After almost 20 years of on-the-job experience, I’m also interested in space and dark-sky topics.
I’m always experimenting, pushing the limits of the medium.
In 2014 I began working more on pieces to hang, often recycling frames by designing fused glass pieces to enhance them. I’m also giving new life to wood boxes, adding fused glass to them.
If you see a piece you like or that you would like more information about, please contact me, (520) 624-7086 or by email at diane c taylor at netscape.net (written all together).
