Amy Waldman

amy-corning-jan-2012_700wForm and symmetry are hallmarks of Amy’s beads. She pays close attention to the technical details and strives towards uniform, functional beads. Amy has been making glass beads since 2001 and began working from her home studio in Richmond Hill in 2003. Prior to that, she haunted the beadFX studio in every spare moment. Amy has been teaching people how to make lampwork beads at BeadFX since 2004. Amy is an attentive and giving teacher who strives to be the kind of teacher she would enjoy taking classes from.

Amy’s current work forms part of a series of work entitled Ottoman Beads. This work is about footprints. The footprints we leave behind in each and everything we do and say.? The footprints of glass that can be manipulated, stretched or pushed ? each influences the elements surrounding it. One footprint pushes the next, but never supplants it – a metaphor for living.

Amy’s beads have been seen in numerous exhibits, magazines and venues across North America, including:? Artist Spotlight ? The Glass Bead, Summer 2012 issues, Small but Beautiful, Top 40 International beads/beadmakers, Glass Line Magazine June/July 2012, ISGB Convergence II, ISGB Convergence III, ISGB Surface and Corning Museum of Glass (Studio Case).
