Jeanine Erickson, Stained Glass, Jewelry, Pottery
Jeanine has chosen to feature her leaf inspired stained glass and ceramic work for the month of July. Many of her designs come from using actual leaves; resulting in ceramic platters, pitchers and candle shelters, and stained glass mirrors and panels and boxes.
Jeanine Erickson is a stained glass artisan whose glasswork is essentially multi-media pieces that can include art glass, hammered copper sheet & wire, ceramics, agate slices, and fused glass pieces. Her organic lines, creative use of negative space and decorative soldering serve to augment the design that she has in mind. The finished work can result in a box, kaleidoscope, mirror or a large panel. Jeanine has been involved in glasswork for 20 years, holding a BA in Music Education & an MA in Music Theory & Composition from Montclair University. mailto:email@example.com
