Functional Art Glass

Art has always been a big part of Helen's life going back to her childhood days when she learned to paint, draw, tool leather, etc. She gives credit to her father who was very talented and encouraged her to explore her artistic abilities.  Helen also feels that her talent is God given and that she just nurtures it.

In 2007, Helen started to design jewelry pieces to give as gifts to friends and family. After constant encouragement from them she started her own business, DanglesNBangles.com. 

In 2012, Helen's interests to keep learning various mediums in the art world led her to her latest love for glass. She extended her business to include GlassByHelen.com. 

Glass By Helen is a small, family-owned and operated company specializing in creating beautiful glass designs.  
Our fused glass collections are personally designed by Helen.  Her designs are carefully executed, one-at-a-time, by hand in her studio, ensuring the highest possible quality. 

Helens biggest enabler is her husband who helped her get her start as a glass artist by working out all of the details to install 3 kilns.  This meant working out the fine details involving the electrical side.  He even had a hand in loading and unloading her kilns on a very large project that started the whole world of glass fusing as a business for her.  She is very grateful to her husband, Mike for all of his support.

Helen especially enjoys working on custom designs because it gives her the chance to work one on one with her clients.
