Glass Paper Scissors

Functional Art Glass

Artist's Statement:
I am Kolika. Glass artist + designer based in Somerville MA. And I make wearable + functional glass art.
Glass Paper Scissors evolved from a line of mixed media and repurposed glass arts to primarily focus on kiln-formed and stained glassware for home & garden and office use and wearable art aka jewelry.
Look closely. In my work, you will find elements of Nature, you'll clearly see how inspired I am by my travels, by poetry, by the strength and fragility of humans and most of all, the material light plays off it and on it-what goes through and what comes back- the optics & the chemistry, the fluidity & the thickness, the fragility & the strength, the planning and the unpredictability- all of it.

Enjoy the Open Studios weekend and may you find genuine art that speaks to you.
