After viewing many breathtaking stained glass cathedral windows during a trip to Europe, and watching glass blowing in Murano, Italy, teaching artist, Ellen Marshall fell in love with glass. When she returned home, she began doing research about American made glass and soon took her first stained glass class. For years, in her spare time, Ellen made many stained- glass windows, lamps and mirrors. After retiring, Ellen took a glass fusing class and was fascinated by the multitude of techniques and processes that one could experiment with while fusing glass. That began her journey across the country to learn some of these techniques from some fabulous teachers. Among the many classes were: strip cutting in Denver, Colorado with Patty Gray; crackle and powder theory with Robert Leatherbarrow at Oatka Glass in New York State; Sandblasting at Oatka with Lance and Amanda; pattern bars and flow bars at Bullseye Glass in Santa Fe, New Mexico; silkscreen and photo imaging with Gail Stouffer in Rhode Island; and most recently fused glass landscapes with Alice Gebhart in Rhode Island.
