Judy Butler’s fused glass work is influenced by animals, nature, color, and whimsy. She is fortunate to live on a farm in Newcastle, surrounded by numerous animals, loving family and natural beauty. Her glass studio is located in this inspirational setting. Her process starts with creating a design and then carefully cutting pieces of glass. It’s layered in a kiln where it is fired for approximately 18 hours. This may be repeated several times until the artwork has achieved the desired effect. The pieces Judy creates are one-of-a-kind and include fine jewelry and pieces for the home. Her unique products demonstrates craftsmanship and design with a touch of whimsy. Judy’s work is displayed at several local galleries, stores and on the internet.
