Happy Birthday: Karla Trinkley Dexter
Karla Trinkley Dexter is a contemporary glass artist that was born on July 31st.
She is best known for her application of pâte de verre, a technique of cast glass that results in a unique opaque texture. She currently operates a glass studio, Taylor Backes.
I love her texture and geometric designs, and how she balances smooth transparent glass with rough opaque glass. Her addition of unexpected vessel interiors provides a surprise for the viewer.
