Deborah Lovelace Richardson combines the techniques of glass forming developed by the ancient Egyptians with her contemporary designs to create one-of-a-kind designer glassware and art glass jewelry. You may e-mail Deborah at dlartglass@aol.com

The artist received a BFA degree from the Maryland Institute, College of Art in 1976. At the Institute she majored in painting and acquired a good color sense and a love for design. She began working in glass in 1978, learning the basic skills of stained glass production. By 1981, she was working in her own stained glass studio in Annapolis, Maryland, designing custom windows and specializing in restoring antique glass windows and lamps. As a direct result of working in glass restoration she began experimenting with kiln slumped glass and glass painting. She has been working exclusively in kiln fired glass since 1986.

Deborah’s glassware creations are formed from layers of colored glass combined with lusters, paint, copper inclusions, and Dichroic glass. The glasswork can require between three to seven kiln firings, with recutting and grinding in between firings, to create the look the artist wants to achieve. All of Deborah’s glass pieces are one of a kind originals.

She exhibits in galleries and craft shows in the Mid Atlantic region and has a studio at her home near New Market, Maryland.
