Functional Art Glass
Note: SOS 2020 has been canceled as an in-person event. Please check out our artists' profiles, associated social media, and the new SOS YouTube channel.
I am Kolika. Glass artist + designer from Teele Sq Somerville. I make wearable + functional glass art, primarily kiln-formed, occasionally stained glass and if whims allow then, mosaics. Glass Paper Scissors evolved from a line of mixed media and repurposed glass arts. And while I do focus on the functional, my play often lies in acrylics. I am deeply inspired by Nature and the human condition.
Whatever the media, my aesthetics are fluid and abstract, an ode to the materials themselves. My designs look great with bohemian decor. They also click well with midcentury furnishings. Minimalist modern is always a good setting. But my designs look and feel their greatest in rooms that are filled with laughter and friends.
