The Artists: Angie Polonich & Jade McClendon
We started lampworking in 2002 when Angie got talked into taking a beadmaking class. After previously dabbling in rustic wood projects and stained glass, she decided to give it a shot. As soon as Angie got home, we had to have it all, ASAP. We were set up with MAPP gas and a crock pot filled with vermiculite at the kitchen table. It wasnít near fast enough for Angie, but then again, her motto is ĎGo big or go homeí. Not long after, we had the large propane and oxygen tanks and 2 kilns. Now, a few years later, we have five torches, three minor burners, two Carlisle, 5 kilns, 3 large oxygen tanks, and more glass than we could ever melt, even if we made beads every day for the rest of our lives.
We just canít get enough. Often, we wake up in the middle of the night thinking about what our beads are like from the day on the torch. We just canít wait!
Angie and Jade invite clients over to see the home studios (and what a studio it is!), join in a coffee or wine (even better), share and enjoy the never-ending inspiration. There is never any obligation to purchase anything; we love to share in our passion for our wearable art.
Please give us a call or email to pop over to see our home studios and check out our amazing selection of wearable artÖ
