A touch of glassJanice Osborne, Glass Artist

Janice, who lives in La Quinta, started her career in Glass in the late 70’s doing stained glass, windows, doors, lamps chandeliers and even room dividers.  About ten years ago she decided to broaden her glass knowledge using the kiln to fuse and manipulate glass.  Each piece is hand crafted and takes several days to make with multiple firings. Today she is enjoying making her jewelry from glass she designs herself and her standing glass cats, dogs, wind chimes and the “Galaxy of Colors” Wall hangings are all made to decorate your home and hopefully, put a smile on your face.
