Lindy Ihrman is a glass artist from West Michigan who’s work is a play between her love of photography and her passion for kiln-formed glass. She creates unique, vibrant pieces by layering her own digital images within multiple sheets of glass and kiln forming to create 3-dimensional pieces that are a unique narrative of metaphor through imagery.
Lindy has been using glass as her chosen medium for over fifteen years. “Glass is a medium like no other. It is organic, created by elements derived from nature itself. The juxtaposition of strength and fragility of glass reflects our connection with the natural world in so many ways. The images layered within my pieces reflect my personal view. Each piece tells a story.” She continues to grow as an artist by attending workshops, residencies and meeting with other glass artists and studios throughout the country.
