Tell us about yourself!
I am Lucy Lyon and have been working in glass since the early eighties. I live and work north of Santa Fe, New Mexico. New Glass by Otto Rigan inspired me to pursue work in stained glass. After taking many workshops and classes, I eventually became a caster.

What draws you to the material you work with, and why have you chosen the processes that you use in your work?
I love sculpting and I choose to cast my sculptures in glass because I love the way glass captures the light.

What themes do you pursue in your work?
I work with the figure. With my smaller figures in groupings I do studies of the subtleties of peoples’ interactions. My larger figures are more about the figure’s stance conveying a feeling to the viewer.

What is your dream project?
I would love to make a piece with a large number of people, 30 or more, perhaps all involved in the same event but each having a distinct and unique take on a situation…..something akin to a sculptural mural.

If you weren't working in this field, what career would you choose?
Initially I thought I would be a teacher but I think I might have been more suited to being a detective.

What's something about you that most people don't know?
I love dancing to old soul music like Smokey Robinson and the Miracles.

Why are you a member of GAS?
It gives me great pleasure to be part of a community that is so connected by their art and the material they use.
