Jennifer Baker, Glass
Jennifer is a glass artist in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. She lived in the Midwest before moving to Colorado in 2007. Her creative instincts would not be fully realized until she was immersed in the colors, lights and shadows of the rich mountain landscapes, expansive skies and crystal waters of the west that inspire her work. That inspiration is best expressed in the medium of glass. The subtlety of the colors, the reflections and the translucency of light on and through the glass, and the uncertainty of the final piece bring that world into works that range from impressionistic landscapes to sculpture. Fascinated with a process that can be unpredictable, Jennifer manipulates the placement of the glass to represent major shapes, and then layers and/or casts to create textures and interferences that scatter light.
