Suzanne Balestri was an interior designer when she first began her explorations with fused glass. After taking a glass workshop for fun in 2006, it didn’t take long for her passion for the glass medium to ignite.
She named her company “Cocoon” to symbolize not only the transformation that the glass goes through when heated to extreme degrees, but also to represent her own personal transformation as she continues to explore what she loves. An avid runner and longtime yoga practitioner, Suzanne melds her powerful, yet graceful, glass art with her dedication to personal and spiritual growth. Her home studio is located in Cardiff By the Sea, California.
