Judy Joustra working
In July of 2009, while vacationing in Boise, I spent the afternoon at a studio named Fusions. I had never worked with glass or even considered it an artistic medium. I was fascinated. I was in the studio four hours that day but it seemed like only a few minutes. I enjoyed the visit but when I got my finished piece I knew that I had found an endeavor I could enjoy for years to come. Back in Reno, I took a beginning fusing class and then a glass jewelry class. I purchased a microwave kiln and my cottage industry in glass jewelry began. Within a few months, I bought a larger kiln and began fusing larger pieces. I find the process of creation with glass an endless stream of possibility. The materials, methods and techniques that can be used are varied and vast. Everyday I find a new technique to add to my list of future projects!
