This weeks featured artisan from the It's Better Handmade blog ring is Joy Day of Glasssculpture.org. Joy has always interested in creating things when she was growing up.

Joy's love for cats and her own cats has inspired her to make pet memorials:

Joy studied space and computers in college

Fused Glass Tile Pendant - Radiant Panorama

Joy creates many large pieces too including baptism basins,

 bowls and communion Sets

Each item is handmade in the USA by Joy and her partner, in their mountaintop studio. They offer a range of art techniques and services including glassblowing (large and small), carving, etching, molding, fusing, painting, prints and installation.
