Always expressing herself through creative writing and various applied arts, Judy began exploring art using glass, taking various classes in stained glass, mosaics and fused glass. In 2011 she and 14 other fused glass artist opened La Hoya Glass Artists Studio in Richardson.
The properties of glass are magical and diverse. Fused glass art allows for a myriad of creative possibilities. Every piece is one-of-a kind, and every piece the artist creates can utilize the many properties of glass and the many colors of glass: glass powder and frit, opaque sheet glass, transparent sheet glass, vitrograph, irid glass, glass rods and stringers, dichroic glass, and more. Exploring various heating processes and the layering of glass allows for endless creative expression and experimentation. The end result – a piece you fall in love with.
