View Full Bio
I am a native Texan who has lived on both the East and West Coasts. My love of working with glass began in 1983 and has followed me throughout my life. My strong connection to nature is rooted in my passion for hiking and exploring the outdoors. My work is a reflection of the awe and wonder I feel at nature's ability to create the rare and exotic. I have worked for and been mentored by a number of glass artists around the country and for that I am thankful. I am now a full time studio artist living in Austin, Texas.

Join Glenda Kronke on an incredible journey using powders to create free-form organic shapes inspired by the wonders of nature. This video class is a breath of fresh air and a break from technical glass education and encourages you, the artist, to emerge, experiment and "play." Follow along with Glenda as she demonstrates three projects from start to finish focusing on color and style, all the while encouraging you to step outside the box and spread your own wings and develop your own style. The video is geared towards ALL skill levels and beginners are welcome. You will be surprised at how simple it really is to create such jaw-dropping fused glass art and we guarantee this technique will have your mind spinning and reawaken the artist within you. Firing schedules & supply list are included for you to download.

NOTE: It is strongly advisable to use the exact powder colors used in Glenda's projects demonstrated if you do not have the experience of powder technique, color blending or layering with powders. Since color is a large part of this technique's success, we recommend creating color samples prior to exploring on your own.
