Wanda Kehlenbeck Tyner
I am inspired by the beauty of nature seen while hiking, biking, kayaking, traveling or enjoying nature’s show in my backyard.
I manipulate and form glass into shapes with heat, flow, dimension, patterns and texture bringing vibrant colors to life.
My journey as a glass artist began with a quest to understand how the glass art we collected on our travels was made. I quickly discovered a new passion for my creativity. I am fascinated with the scientific properties of glass and the technical programming required to achieve various results in kiln-forming and casting. I enjoy the focus and precision it takes to design and explore colors, patterns, textures, shapes and techniques to create kiln-formed and kiln-casted glass art that can be bright, bold, subtle, or textured.
My artwork depicts a story that flows from realistic representations of nature to abstract interpretations with creative 3D elements. In addition to fine art 3D wall hangings and sculptures; I create vessels, bowls, vases, garden art, clocks and jewelry.
