American artist Chelle Jovan was born in 1967 in St Louis. Missouri is still her home state. She started her journey behind the torch in 2010 teaching herself glass techniques then moving onto sculptural work. She is best known for her custom pet portraiture glass work. Prior to working behind a glass torch she has created in stained glass, glass fusing, mosaics and a few other mediums. "My inspiration comes from the love of animals" With a background in earthenware and polymer clay, she applies those same techniques to molten glass to create a miniature likeness of a person's pet. You can find some of her published work in Glass Line magazine http://www.hotglass.com
Message to students
I am greatly looking forward to teaching this workshop and can’t wait until I meet each of you. There will be a few things that you will need to bring to class. You will need your favourite sculpting tools (I use a razor blade tool, flat blade, a spare bead mandrel and tweezers) several 5/32 bead mandrels, and 5x7 reference photos of a yellow Labrador.
