Welcome to my site.

This is where i like to show the Glassware, Stoneware, Jewelry, and New Dyeing work we do.

My name is Evelyn Tipton. I have been working with glass for more than 15 years. I enjoy turning ideas and photographs into usable glassware. My glassware - plates and bowls - are food safe, and make both beautiful show pieces and every day dishes.

Each piece is cut from art sheet glass and layered with two sheets to make it about 1/4 inch thick. The design is layered on top, with each different color cut out of compatible glass. Sometimes frit (crushed glass) or lamp-worked (torch melted) pieces are added to bring in the necessary details. The layered piece is fused at about 1520 degrees F, annealed and cooled. It is then placed on a mold, reheated and sagged at about 1300 degrees. It is again annealed and cooled. The annealing toughens the glass, making it resistant to breaking.

I specially select, cut and coat the rocks used in the coasters.

My daughter, Kim, and I demonstrate and sell lamp-worked glass beads and fused dichroic pendants and earrings. If you are interested in these, please contact me at the e-mail address below.
