Art Glass by Susan Haskell

 Cityscape Silhouette Vase in indigo and black by artist Susan Haskell
 Cityscape Silhouette Vase of a Moscow skyline by artist Susan Haskell

Susan Haskell is our featured artist at Ten Women on Montana Ave for January 2013. Her beautiful glass vases of cityscapes and Matisse inspired nudes can be seen in the window until January 31st. Susan has been working in glass for 29 years. She first joined Ten Women nine years ago and is a teaching assistant for glass making at Santa Monica College as well as an art teacher at Canyon Elementary school. Her artistic skill is evident in all her work but especially in these silhouette vases that were created by cutting away the top layer of black glass to reveal the lighter colored glass underneath. I think you will agree that the effect is striking and the vases are heirloom quality and would make a wonderful wedding present or anniversary gift.
