ABOUT STACY

I am a proud 5th generation Texan, and San Antonio has been home for over 40 years. I began working with glass in 2003, and has traveled the United States and Canada learning from renowned glass artists. I have been blessed to study with world renowned glass artists such as Jiri Harcuba, Liners Torre, April Surgent, Jane Bruce, Steve Klein, Mel George and Jeremy Lepisto, Bob Leatherbarrow, and Kirstie Rea. I have twice been chosen to be one of the privileged glass artists to study at Pilchuck Glass School, and feel honored to have been included in their juried annual auction four times. 

I make architectural glass which includes sinks, tabletops, and lighting and signage. I have been commissioned to make numerous signage for Texas businesses.  I was commissioned to make a public art piece for the University Health Systems in San Antonio, and am very proud to be included with this art filled hospital.

After working with art glass for over 12 years, I began experimenting with upcycled bottle glass and started developing unique new products.  I then formed Texas UpCycle and began selling these products at local art fairs and Texas boutiques. These products are now offered to qualified wholesale accounts. Producing one of kind top quality products is very important to me, and I will continue to strive to discover new ways to upcycle glass. I am proud to offer one of a kind top quality Texas hand crafted goods.

My art bowls are kiln fired four separate times, and then I spend hours on each one lathe working the designs. Each is deeply carved to reveal hidden layers of color, and texture is added to the outside of the bowl. My work seeks to examine the intimate emotional relationships created within the spirit of self. I show this by creating work that has hidden layers, then exposing those hidden layers like exposing the truth of who we are. My work reminds us to always be authentic and live with our hearts wide open. I do this by extensively cold working the glass on a lathe, so that it no longer resembles glass, because what you see is not always the truth. By making glass not look like glass, I am reminding us to live our inner truth.

In 2015 I started an intimate life casting project of casting women's private areas, I worked with over 50 women between the ages of 21 and 58. After realizing so many women felt disgust regarding their bodies, I set about to show the beauty in the female form.  I was able to help many women overcome their fears, shame, and embarrassment regarding their private body parts. It was a rewarding, enlightening, and empowering experience for everyone who participated. After a 6 month show of over 50 castings, a smaller grouping of the plaster and glass vaginas are on permanent display with the educational Institute of Sexology located in San Antonio, Texas. I continue to offer private castings. Another aspect of my life castings, is that I offer castings of women's torsos.  I also offer pre and post mastectomy castings, and am currently applying for grants to offer women who are suffering from cancer discounted sculptures.
