RUTH WOODS, BIO/STATEMENT
I have been a resident of Lake Arrowhead for twelve years. For the past eight years I have been designing jewelry. When given the opportunity to learn dichroic glass fusing I was truly hooked. The possibilities are endless, not only in jewelry design but larger plates and dishes.
I have also added a new media, that of hand dyeing silk scarves. Here as in glass work the colors are fabulous and there are so many techniques available.
I have had the privilege of being an instructor for many years in glass fusing and scarf dyeing at UCLA Bruin Woods held at the Conference Center here in Lake Arrowhead each summer. I travel to many shows both local and at a distance.
I am very proud to have my work in the Mountain Arts Network Gallery and look forward to holding workshops in our teaching center very soon.
