My beautiful Family: Fay (my daughter-in-law), David (my son), Me, Madisen (my daughter) and Dan (my husband).

Karen Ferrantelli – Glass Artist

ElegantFusedGlassByKaren.com is a family enterprise. My daughter Madi and I love to create together and my husband does all the photography and web work. I create each Fused Glass piece by hand, in my home studio in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

I have always loved glass. I have glass from all over the world including Italy, Israel, Ireland, Germany, Japan, etc.  I love the way it can be manipulated and changed and if I don’t like something I create I can smash it and create something new.  I’ve always loved arts and crafts and have taken classes in everything from Ikebana to framing and played around with clay to bead making, but when I found glass I fell in love. When you see fused glass in person I know you will too. Besides my

Each Fused Glass piece is made by firing (up to 1500 degrees) dichroic and other beautiful sheets of glass (including streaky and iridized).  We also use glass frits, powders, stringers, inclusions, decals, and fusible images to create unique designs.

Our Fused Glass Gallery artwork includes slumping of dishes, bottles, and a variety of other Fused Glass projects.

I add new Fused Glass pieces as often as I can, so be sure to check back often! Although I admit when I get home from my job if I have time I’d prefer to be with my family or in my studio not on the computer!

I hope you love my handcrafted Fused Glass Artwork  as much as I love making them.
