Featured Artist Brenda Smith of Fire and Ice Studio

Brenda Smith of Fire and Ice Studio
Brenda Smith holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Brigham Young University. She loves art and making things with her own hands. Brenda has been in the art field for twenty-nine years, with an emphasis on glass the last seven. She began with leaded glass windows, then went on to stained glass and copper foil, building triple-glazed windows, and performing commissioned work for business and residential clients.
Brenda, who has four grown children and two grandchildren, lives in Fullerton, California, with her husband Gary. After fusing her first piece of glass, Brenda told her husband that she wanted a kiln, to which he and her sons said, “Youʼll burn the house down!” Their house is still standing, though, and looks even better.

From there, it was glass painting, jewelry boxes, custom glass tiles, mosaics, and consulting work across the United States.

"I love working with all forms of glass! I love combining different techniques to create 'mixed media' glass art work. I've recently started using bits of GlueFoil to accent the leaded glass windows I create with No Days Glaze. I love the easy extra sparkle and detail it adds to the glass."
Brenda has been perfecting her techniques with No Days Liquid Fusing Adhesive for a few years. She shares those techniques in an article she wrote that was published in the Fall 2009 issue of Glass Patterns Quarterly, Frit Painting - A Fall Leaf Plate. The article is available here.

Brenda never wants to stop learning new things to do with glass. Her glass work can be found in the United States, Japan, and Brazil.
