About the Instructor

Sandi Johnston combines colorful dichroic and iridescent glass with the art of fusing, creating art glass with timeless beauty. Each of her pieces is handcrafted from numerous sheets of glass that are hand-cut, assembled, and melted at temperatures over 1400°; followed by gradual cooling. Then the jewelry designer takes over and creates a one of a kind art to wear a signature piece of jewelry. For functional art glass, they are then reheated to above 1200° to slump the glass into its chosen shape. Let the individual beauty prevail! Visit Sandi's Website
