Our Art Center

Why do I fuse glass?

The sheer beauty of finished glass projects never ceases to amaze me.  I cannot wait to wake up every day and create something new and unique out of glass.  In addition, I love teaching fusing and watching the light bulb illuminate in each student.  I continue to grow and learn from students with each class.

How did I become a glass fuser?

To achieve my glass working goals, I have taken classes from the very best fusers, working my way from St. Louis to Florida, and to the Glass Craft Expo in Vegas. My teachers have included, the very best in the glass arts. And while my educational background is not in glass, I have taken series of classes in other arts.  Examples of the types of art classes include, beading, wire wrapping, ceramics, torch work, faux painting, and acrylic painting.

I am Diane Rataj, fused glass addict, or 2Di4Glass!
