As glass artist Kate MacLeod explains, “My life portrays itself in glass: transparent and fluid, sophisticated, ans sometimes whimsical. The medium beckons my participation, reaching beyond traditional applications and transformed by my imagination.” Early in Kate’s pursuit of glass artistry, she took a course in glass enameling which culminated in a glass breast plate which later found its way into the musical performances of Lady BoDiddley. Enjoying the unique combination of a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from the University of California at Davis, and a MBA in finance, Kate sees special relationships in terms of abstract mathematics. When Kate’s heightened sense of color is added, you have the a combination which results in extraordinary ground-breaking concepts. Kate has surpassed the ordinary, providing unique and inventive solutions to esthetic needs across the spectrum of glass art stretching through architectural applications, and 2 and 3 dimensional art forms.
Kate’s glass art studio is in Bend, Oregon. She accepts a limited number of engagements teaching advanced fusing techniques and accepts advanced students for private lessons at her studio in Bend.
