This week’s Meet the Artist is Juli Juneau, a renowned glass artist from New Orleans. Like many of our artists, Juli is inspired by nature, and uses the movements and colors in natural surroundings to create beautiful glass art. She has traveled extensively to many remote parts of the world – often solo – and so has had multiple inspirations from nature during these travels.
In her words “The organic creation of glass is part of its mystique and power: a lightning storm, a bolt ignites, and a piece of glass appears – much like a genie rising from the desert sands of Africa. This magic is the lure and the passion of glass for me.”
