Laura Mendola Fused Glassware
"I have been creating artwork my entire life. My mother was a full time studio ceramic artist. As a child, I was exposed to glass in Corning, NY at Stuben Glass. I began experimenting with glass when my dad bought me my own small test kilns.
Alaska has provided the inspiration and subject matter for much of my artwork.
My work is colorful, contemporary and organic. These sculptures hang easily in contemporary and traditional spaces alike. Many of my sculptures are in public and private collections. The vibrant and multi-faceted glass and metal sculptures captivate the viewer with in depth exploration of beauty, strength, and the fragility of nature.
Here I express my love of the ocean and water in a selection of soothing seascapes."
