|Mary Murray is a fused glass artist in Laguna Beach, CA. She has worked in ceramics and glass since 2002 after retiring from a career in computer systems.
Mary has been an exhibitor in the Sawdust Art Festival in 2006, the Sawdust Winter Fantasy in 2004-2012, and several Sawdust Art Studio Tours.
Her fused glass plates have frequently been featured in the Studio Arts Gallery’s monthly exhibits of glass tableware from the gallery opening in October 2006 through December 2011.
Mary’s fused glass pieces are created in the artist’s home studio in Laguna Beach. Designs are constructed from hand cut pieces of fusible art glass, and are fused in a kiln at about 1450°F. A second firing is done at about 1300°F to “slump” the glass into a molded form, such as a platter or bowl. During each of the two firings, the glass stays in the kiln for up to 2 days to insure proper annealing.
All of the designs are the artist’s originals, using themes from the natural surroundings in the Laguna Beach area. Each piece is engraved with the artist’s signature.
