Fused Glass & Wire Designs Diane
Enger, artist and teacher
I like to think of my art pieces as paintings
made with glass and wire. I start with a blank canvas, which is a piece of glass or a wire form. I then create
a focal point. Next, different kinds of glasses and wire work techniques are used to complete the "composition". ...My art is all about reflection and contrast - reflection and contrast of materials and life experiences.
My glass and wire "paintings" take the shape of adornments for your body, soul or habitat. I create
visual pieces that give form, to my thoughts and observations. Glass has an intrinsic reflective quality and when combined
with wire work techniques or subjected to a variety of fusing techniques this quality can be enhanced or designed to intensify
contrast. I find these materials to be a perfect media to depict my observations and feelings visually. I hope
my work inspires you to take time to reflect....
