Pamela Rice's parents encouraged creativity in their children, from music and art to handmade crafts. Rice's upbringing and her 15 years of experience as a graphic designer influence her glass work. The forms she creates include loving details, vivid colors, and a touch of elegance.
Rice utilizes techniques from the old masters as well as the new to add interest and variety to her work. Rice combines custom-made murrini, hand-cut chips of glass, organic patterns from crucible drips and mesh melts, and strip-cut glass to create kiln-formed vessels, trays, and decor.
Rice is primarily self-taught through experimentation, books on glass techniques, and online glass forums. She also had the privilege to learn from renowned glass artist Martin Kremer during one of his workshops.
