Siyeh (pronounced sigh-yee) Studio was born in Missoula Montana in 1987. The name came from the Siyeh Peak, Siyeh Pass area of Glacier National Park in Montana, and was chosen as reminder of origins and home when I moved to Chicago in the fall of 1987 for graduate school. My glasswork reflects my obsession with the interplay of color and light--especially in my current series "Morceaux de Verre".
I also enjoy collaborating with other artists like Todd Briske, an Atlanta Georgia artist who creates the aluminum wire work, and Bill and Elaine Snell from Greenville South Carolina who create the steel pieces. I live in Austin Texas with my husband, daughter, two dogs, and three cats. In my free time I write (books on glass fusing, and technical software docs), spin (with a spinning wheel, not a bike), weave, sew, quilt, knit, crochet, am a silversmith, potter, woodworker, and gardener.
One thing's for sure: It's never boring!
