Artist's Resumé

Karen Sutherland
Glass Artist

Artist’s Statement

Our world, particularly if we work in an office or at a computer all day, is becoming increasingly cerebral, two-dimensional, and devoid of emotion. I believe humans need more to nourish themselves. I am inspired by the people around me and the bits of nature that make their way into my urban environment. My blown glass pieces are intended to bring a little color and joy into the hearts and minds of all who see them. They provide a sense of peacefulness while allowing the natural creativity and playfulness of the human spirit to flow.
