To wrap up 2019 and inspire you for a productive 2020, I’m sharing my favorite glass art pictures of 2019.


Over the holidays I enjoyed quality time with family and friends. I took a few days off to relax and refresh my creative spirit, but now I’m ready to take 2020 on and make exiting new glass art.

Before jumping ahead and making a bunch of resolutions, I like to list some of my accomplishments from the previous year. This simple exercise is a huge boost to my self-esteem. It’s tangible proof that my efforts, no matter how small, are making a difference. And what’s better, is the satisfaction I feel knowing that I’ve made progress. And that’s a powerful motivator for building forward momentum toward new goals.

Take a minute and list the things you accomplished in 2019. Then think about your process. What steps did you take to achieved success? What worked? What didn’t? How can you improve your results? Now, take time to be proud of yourself. Any progress is positive.

As for me, I’m proud to say I built, and now manage my new website. I’m amazed how well my website has been received. And I’m thrilled that it’s been a wonderful vehicle to connect with so many established and new glass artists. Also, in 2019 I completed several custom art glass installations, produced three new instructional videos and wrote several glass related articles. Plus, I entered a few short stories in competitions. That’s fun stuff!

In 2020 I intend to practice yoga more regularly and add meditation to my weekly routine. I plan to produce two new instructional videos utilizing newly developed advanced glass fusing techniques. I’m also going to design more original, sculptural commissions. And, I’ll write more regularly and finish my novel.

It’s hard to describe what it’s like when I’m feeling the creative flow. Time flies. Hours pass in what I thought were minutes. My naturally distracted mind is focused on what my hands are doing, and nothing else. I get lost in my own world. When I return to reality, I feel rejuvenated and spiritually uplifted. That’s why I like sharing my studio space with others. I try to give them that experience and hope they feel the same inspiration and fulfillment I do. -Lisa

  1. Hi Lisa. I have been inspired by your Sculptural Fused Glass video and am about to erect my first sculpture comprising two pieces of 5 layer coloured glass which has been slumped over a wave mold. I see you use silicone to glue your pieces to a base. Any tricks I should know about using the silicone?



    1. Hi Bruce,
      Thank you for your interest in my videos! I usually grind the edge that I intend to glue, so the adhesive sicks better. Also, I prop the artwork up and secure it with tape for 24 hours while the glue dries.
      I hope this helps. I’m sure you will have great success.

      Take care,

      1. That for your response. Bruce
