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 once again as she takes you on a Surfin' Safari Adventure!  Glenda has had two huge hits with her Nature's Wonders video classes and now she's back teaching you glass fusing skills that can be adapted in so many ways... in any size kiln.  Glenda is easy to follow with her carefree style of teaching.  She encourages you to explore and go your own way while adapting your own style of art glass.  The fundamentals of this video can be utilized in an abundance of ways in all your glass work.  Topics covered are:


  • Creating pattern bars using Bullseye powders
  • Creating a custom dam mold that can be made in any size or shape
  • Creating a custom pattern and shape that will catapult your glasswork and make your art uniquely you
  • Reconstruction with pattern bar inserts into your glass work
  • Finishing techniques
  • Slumping the piece
  • All firing schedules included and can be found in "My PDFs" in your account
