Heather says: As a California girl a lifetime in the sunshine has clearly influenced my work. I love all things bright and colorful! I began my glass career building beautiful stained glass windows. Then I discovered flame-working and have been playing with fire and glass ever since. Now, 25 years later, I still love to sit down at my torch and create glass beads in vibrant colors and have no intention of slowing down anytime soon!
Today a rod of glass with a colored core is at the heart of my spiral. By heating it and wrapping it carefully layer after layer around a mandrel I create a playful and colorful spiral.
