My name is Carol Personte and I’m a glass artist in Webster, New York.
There is something fascinating about glass, how it changes and plays with light, how it nourishes us and gives us a literal window to the world…how it’s hard and brittle and breakable but at the same time unbreakable. How fire softens and melts it and allows us to create a thing beautiful or funky or functional.
The Bee’s Knees and other Flights of Fancy was born from a lifelong need to make stuff, any kind of stuff! It was a creative life of wild and reckless abandon. That changed the moment I sat down at the torch. I can say that I am now happily obsessed with the wonderful medium of glass and the meditative process to create with it.
