ABOUT

Gigi Erickson has been working in the stained glass field since 1977. She has worked for many successful stained glass artists before she started her own business in 1990. Soon after that, she was introduced to her current passion, glass blowing. She apprenticed under a very accomplished glass artist and acquired her own hot shop in 2007. The one of a kind creations of art that she makes can take up to several days and even weeks to produce. She puts much care and precision into each work of art. Gigi has studied under some of the greatest glass artists in the world. She has taken classes from such notable artists as Bill Gudenrath, Tyler Rock, Davide Salvadore. A number of years ago Gigi also started making fused glass wall art. She fuses pieces of dichroic glass onto a black back ground. Some pieces are abstract and some are literal. Dichroic glass produces a glow of its own but then the fused piece is mounted onto a decorative glass that has been silvered. Making the back ground mirror reflective also. The wall art glows in a beautiful and unique way.
