Dana Worley, Fused Glass Designs

Blue purple flowing banner

Even as a child, I needed to create. I started by weaving pot holders, sewing doll clothes, and making paper flowers. By the time I was in high school I was making my own clothes. I have worked with crocheting, cross-stitching and needlepoint, quilting, rug-hooking, weaving, fabric marbling, paper-making, and jewelry design. You name it and I have likely tried it -- at least once!

I began working with stained glass in the early 1990s. With a desire to create beads for jewelry in 2009, I discovered kiln-formed (or fused) glass and I have pursued this artistic avenue with a passion ever since. While not formally educated in art, I have studied under some of the finest glass artists from around the world and I continue to learn and refine my skills.

While I am creative, I am also very analytical. In my "day job", I work as a Engineering Project Manager at a scientific instrumentation company. Fused glass is a perfect blend of scientific process and creative expression.

My home studio lies in the foothills of Cache Valley in Northern Utah. While I am originally from the Southern US, I have called Utah my home since 1989. In my "free-time", my husband Karl and I enjoy mountain & road biking, hiking, cross-country skiing, exploring new places, and just wandering around with our cameras. I also maintain a blog on fused glass techniques, which can be found at jestersbaubles.blogspot.com

While you're here, I hope you'll take the opportunity to look around the gallery of my work. If you are interested in a commissioned piece, have questions about any of the available pieces, have questions about fused glass, or just want to say hello, contact me!
