About Becky Congdon~

Becky Congdon is a professionally trained glass flamework/lampwork artist.  She uses a torch to melt rods of glass. Each bead/object is decorated with layers of glass, stringers, latticinos, goldstone, foils, etc. She enjoys capturing these decorations in clear glass (called encasing). After each bead/object is embellished, it is annealed in a computer-controlled kiln to remove stress. Then each is hand cleaned and assembled into the designs you see. 

Becky has been working on/off with glass since 1997. She has degrees in mechanical engineering and computer science. She has always loved glass.  However, this major life change came when she had the great opportunity to work in Corning, NY and was "smitten" by glass.  Her first date with her husband was a hands-on open house at The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, NY.  She left the "engineering-faith" so to speak to use her artistic side of her brain full time in 2006.

She now has her own studio in Honeoye, NY (the lovely Finger Lakes region).
