Dana Worley - kiln-formed glass artist
An open window. A notch in a tree. A closed box. Curiosity compels many of us to look inside. With my work I create spaces that entice you to look inside and contemplate what lies within.
I began working with stained glass in the early 1990s and discovered fused glass in 2009. While I am creative, I am also very analytical. Fused glass (glass fired in a kiln) is a perfect blend of scientific process and creative expression.
I make my home in the foothills of Northern Utah. This beautiful high mountain desert, its surrounding areas, and my travel experiences provide inspiration for my work. Using a variety of techniques, I strive to tell a story with color, texture, and design elements in my art.
I am a board member and web master for the Glass Art Guild of Utah and a founding member of The Artists’ Gallery in downtown Logan. I maintain a blog on fused glass at jestersbaubles.blogspot.com and author articles on fused glass for industry-specific magazines.
I maintain a "day job" as a Technical Support Manager for a scientific instrumentation company. When I am not at work or out creating in my studio, I enjoy yoga, hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, travel, and photography.
