|Carrie Strope Sohayda of Calyx Glass|
When Carrie's not firing it up in the glass studio, she's reading everything she can about techniques and trends in glass. As enthusiastic about sharing her knowledge as she is about expanding her own talents, Carrie teaches classes in mosaic, stained glass and fused glass to both children and adults. She is launching the first-ever glass program at the LUX Center for the Arts in her hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska.
Skilled in jewelry design, kilnforming, stained glass painting, as well as quilting, collage and mixed media, Carrie's headlong rush into the creative life started at home where she crocheted with her grandmother, quilted with her mother and worked alongside her dad in his woodshop. Most recently she has delved into the art of "glass quilting," the process of transforming quilt blocks into plates, trays, coasters, and jewelry.
"No Days Liquid Fusing Adhesive helps me to create wonderful textures and patterns with powders in my glass quilts."
She has recently fallen in love with the No Days BailBond. "With BailBond, I'm able to attach findings to several pieces all at once by throwing them in the toaster oven to heat! If I change my mind later, I can switch out findings and turn a pin into a pendant!
When I'm teaching children's classes, I don't have to worry about toxic epoxy. The kids can cut the BailBond and tape it in place with no mess and no worry."
