January Artist of the Month – Mitzi Kugler

Mitzi Kugler

Fused Glass

As a child growing up, I loved watching my grandmother paint and taking pictures on hikes with my Brownie camera. As an adult, I first worked with clay. For 19 years bowls were my passion but the
heavy lifting and pulling were too much for my body so I started to explore glass. First, working on the torch, making all sorts of beads but designing jewelry was not for me. So, I started to make items in the torch that were not beads but more about nature. So my new adventure in my glasswork began.

My love of Pacific NW outdoors inspires my art. As I design a piece, I try to imagine it finished: How will my art piece interact in its environment and how will it elicit a response from the person viewing it? I use frit—a variety of ground glass—to create layers in my pieces. I also use the torch worked pieces, which I fuse into the glass surface to give my work even more textures that are not usually associated
with fused glasswork. The result is a complex degree of depth that plays with the viewer’s eyes to draw them into looking more deeply into my work.

I have been making a variety of trays, bowls and pictures all made of glass.

I am an Oregonian expressing my love for where I live through my art, using glass made here in Portland. You may find my work on Facebook Mitzi Kart or on
