About the Artist
Working in kiln glass, Caryn Brown has learned to trust her creativity and what she knows about the science and physics of glass. From concept to creation, Brown actively manipulates the fundamental materials of sheet glass, frit (ground glass) and rod/stringers. Her work is then surrendered to the kiln where the magic of heat, often in excess of 1500 degrees, works to change the raw materials into art.
Living in the Indiana Dunes National Park (United States,) Brown has access to natural landscapes that includes miles of beach along the southern shore of Lake Michigan. From sand dunes to lake shore, marsh to areas populated with trees, there is nature all around me. There is the fierceness of the winter winds across the Lake Michigan and the gentle breezes of summer. This nature, in all its forms, has the ability to bring about a calm serenity within her. She strives to reference that sense of energy, beauty and calm in the pieces she creates.
