Artist: Jan Glass
|After years of watercolor painting, Jan was looking for a change. Polymer clay work was becoming more popular and looked like a challenge. Not having worked in a third dimension, Jan found it to be the challenge she wanted. She started with small items such as covering light switches, small vases and jewelry. The next phase was to create figures and flowers. Creating figures lead her to making Nativity sets and a wide variety of Santas, angels and a wide variety of playful characters.|
She found that combining her love of color and drawing with the clay added another way of expression. Jan often transfers her drawings to the clay with good results.
Jan has a degree in art education. She taught in the public and private schools before starting her own business. Her works have won many awards over the years. Jan currently teaches watercolor, drawing and creating in polymer clay.
