Sabra Richards currently works with kiln-formed glass. She shares that it has been an interesting journey, finding the challenge of glass in a combination with other materials to be exciting.

She usually begins with sheets of Bullseye Fusible Glass, using a very bold and direct method. To achieve different colors, Sabra carefully chooses and layers different colors. She then creates a design by adding and subtracting glass while keeping in mind the importance of the furnace. At the end of her process, she then combines the finished glass with previously welded steel in order to create outdoor sculptures or wall pieces. The process is long and involved, but Sabra loves how wonderful it is.
