Building and integrating a beautiful palette of color, with an intricate and balanced pattern, in fused glass seems to be my mission these days. ~ L. L.
Lynn Latimer graduated from Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 1975 with a BFA in Painting. She began working with glass at RISD as an independent study, exploring stained glass under the guidance of Dale Chihuly. Chris VanAllsberg, introduced Latimer to sandblasting glass, which continues to be an important element in her work.
I am very interested in line quality and detail, how the glass moves, and how to draw with these elements in the design process. If I have done my job right, the glass draws you in and offers a deeply satisfying visceral experience. The panels bring color and light into a room and are enlivening and joyful. ~ L. L.
Latimer's fused glass panels are created using multiple layers of colored glass. Layering is used to build both a rich and subtle palette of color, where the pieces cross over and under one another, and an intricate rhythm of line and pattern.
Lynn started Latimer Glass Studio in 1976 and has been working in glass for thirty-four years and has won numerous awards for her work including the Niche Award for Fused Glass, Baltimore, Maryland, 1998, 2000, 2005.
