My name is Randie SIlverstein
I spend a lot of time making glass art. I live in Santa Cruz, California---a beautiful place on the sunny side of Monterey Bay. Living in such a gorgeous spot on the planet allows me to draw inspiration from the shapes and colors of nature around me, in all its infinite mystery and all its unrivaled beauty.
I discovered glass late in my artistic career. It was unexpected and i completely immersed myself in learning all i could about fusing glass. its spectrum of color, visual texture, and the aspects of light and transparency seduced me but it was ultimately its transformation in the kiln which convinced me that this was a curiosity I needed to seriously pursue.
I earned a B.F.A. in Ceramics while studying art in college and the subsequent 30+ years making pottery and ceramic sculpture laid a solid foundation for my current explorations in glass.
