My love of glass started in 2005 when my daughter took me to a bead making class at UC Davis. RyPi Designs evolved from there. My creativity would flow out after working all day in Special Ed and Pre K. Working with glass is very fulfilling. Sharing the art of fused glass with people from designing, to cutting large sheets and then firing in a kiln is very exciting to me.
