Karen Stephenson has been working with fused glass for over 22 years in Arizona, Alabama and Ohio. She is self taught with a few classes here and there to learn from experts and fellow artisans. She started fusing glass in Arizona when she noticed a kiln that had been sitting idle for a long time in a glass studio. Karen took on that new adventure never thinking it would still be as exciting 22 years later.
Karen says "Fusing is my hobby and passion and I love to teach and inspire others. Opening the kiln today feels just like the first time. You never know what you might see when you open the kiln, sometimes you do a happy dance and sometimes you scream, but you always learn. I love to create and share my passion with people."
