About the Instructor: 

You’ll find the song of nature in much of Cia Thorne’s work. Organic shapes that mimic the patterns of the earth are the arias in her symphony of glass. With over 30 years practicing in this preferred medium, she combines traditional glasswork and creativity to reinvent the architecture of glass work.  She also has deep expertise in the complexities of metalwork.  Cia has invested countless hours collaborating with other artists and creating her own work.

*** All attendees must wear face masks and adhere to MAKE’s cleaning protocols. Thank you for your cooperation!
