Transparency—From Hippy Van to the Smithsonian Museum of Art
As a kid, Kristina always said, “I want to make things with my hands for a living”. She did not imagine that these things would eventually be made of glass. Kristina talks about her work and the path that lead her to a life of creating objects with a transparent material—glass.
Kristina Logan has been making glass beads for over 20 years and is recognized internationally for her precisely patterned glass beads. She served as president of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers from 1996–1998. Kristina travels extensively throughout the United States and Europe teaching workshops and lecturing on contemporary glass beads and jewelry.
Kristina’s work has been collected by The Smithsonian Museum of American Art: Renwick Gallery, Washington DC, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston MA, The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning NY, and the Musée du Verre de Sars-Poteries, Sars-Poteries, France.
