Sandie Faulk

Glass Artist/Enthusiast

Sandie came to glass in 2014 by accident.  A friend and I signed up for a glass blowing class together as something fun to do, a “once in a lifetime” opportunity.  I had no idea that the first dip into the molten glass would ignite a passion in me.  I couldn’t wait for the next class and then the next class. As the opportunity arose, I was able to help guide students and assist with the many jobs in the hot shop.  Working with students is just as rewarding as creating something for myself. I love to see the smiles on the students' faces when they come to pick up their projects. Over the years, I have met some truly remarkable and talented people.


My love of glass does not end with glass blowing.  I enjoy fusing glass, mosaic glass, pulling vitrigraph, sandblasting, and learning new techniques. It would take many lifetimes to learn everything there is about glass.


From the very first day I walked into Rainbow Glass in 2014 to the present, I still get butterflies thinking of working in the hot shop. Glass art is for everyone!  Come take a class.  It will change your life!
