About The Artist

Michelle Copeland has been practicing Glass Art since 1991.

Largely self-taught, Michelle’s unusual approach to glass is exhibited in her art, capturing elegance, energy and playful color in her work. Each piece is individually created by the artist herself – her unique approach to glass adds interest, prestige and value. Line, form, color and movement are key ingredients that combine to articulate Copeland’s distinctive style.

Her experience includes the following glass and mixed media skills –
Stained Glass, Fusion, Verre Eglomise, Sgraffito, Lampwork, Venetian-style glassblowing, engraving both metal and glass.
Copeland’s custom Stained Glass installations can be found throughout California.
Michelle’s glass and metal work can be found in several private collections throughout the US and abroad.

There is a certain peacefulness I experience while creating glass.
I am sure this positive energy lives within each finished piece.
