Brenda Griffith

Brenda Griffith began kiln forming glass in the mid-1980s in Missoula, Montana. The juxtaposition of lush and stark in the landscape and the colors of the mountains, forests and sky informed her early work.

In 1987, she moved to Chicago, Illinois and launched Siyeh Studio - christened for her favorite area in Glacier Park, Montana. The Craftsman architecture that permeates the Midwest strengthened her appreciation of clean, organic lines and infused the next stage of her work with warmer, softer hues.

Subsequent moves to Austin, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia have enriched her palette with the vibrant colors and the saturation of light in the south and emboldened her to experiment with color and size on a much larger scale.

Commissions and studies have also extended her media & technical range. Sandblast etching and carving, kiln casting, pate de verre and other kiln-forming techniques round out her repertory. Brenda's work is an eclectic mix of functional architectural glass home furnishings and glass art. She is a two-time NICHE Award finalist in the category Fused Glass. Ms. Griffith teaches, mentors and writes. Her book "A Beginner's Guide to Kiln Formed Glass" was published in 2007 by Lark Books. She currently resides in Atlanta with her husband, daughter, two dogs, a ferret and three fish.
