Although I grew up fascinated with art and hoped to pursue a career in the arts, things changed as I got a bit older. The 1980’s recession hit just as I was starting college and I was persuaded to pursue other options and ended up with a career in Information Technologies (yes, a computer geek.)
My wife was the one who helped me get back into art, she decided that I was bored and suggested that I take a class in stained glass back in 1993 (well, I was hooked) and I worked with stained glass until 2003 when I took my first glass fusing class. I continued to create both stained glass and fused glass art but as I am now getting closer to ending my career in information technologies, I am starting to look for a second career as a fused glass artist.
In 2015, I decided to take glass fusing to the next level and started James Brown Art Glass. I am still excited each and every time I open the kiln to see how the pieces turn out. It is fascinating to me how heat, some chemical reactions and light can transform glass into beautiful art work.
