Nancy Becker has always been an artist. As a child in Southern California, she found ways to incorporate art into her life. Nancy attended San Diego State University, intending to study art, but life got in the way. She took a job working at a glass factory and loved it, so she took a glass blowing class and was captivated. That was about thirty years ago. Today Nancy lives in Central Oregon, where she finds inspiration from the natural beauty that surrounds her. She makes hand-blown and shaped glass objects, combining technical craftsmanship with immense beauty. Nancy has spent years refining her approach to glass, a complex and mesmerizing material. Neither a liquid nor a solid, glass changes properties as it changes temperature. A challenging material willing to be transformed, glass is heat, color, transparency, and luminosity in motion.
