Fay Kempton has always loved to work in glass. She designed stained glass for twenty plus years for Stained Glass Designs in Silver Spring, MD.
She understood designing, cutting and manufacturing stained glass, but had not ventured into the world of fused glass. She loved the pieces she got at local art/craft shows. Finally her daughter, Rachael said, "Mom, you know you can make that for yourself." She was right, and Fay was hooked. Design inspiration comes from the depths of the ocean to the Dragon Fly observed flitting across the marsh. She loves making special pieces for her customers, and if a piece breaks: she tells everyone keep every bit: it can be refired. The photo of a martini glass pendant was created for a four footed pup named "Martini". Her owner was very pleased with his new tag.
At present, Fay is working on pieces inspired by the architectural designs of Frank L. Wright. See her Spring/Summer selections in the gallery soon.
