There is energy in heat. Energy in creation. Energy in process. By heating glass to a liquid state and letting it drip onto the "canvas," Cia lets the energy of creation emerge in her work. Work that increases in meaning the longer you examine it.
Cia has been reinventing the architecture of glass for over 30 years. After training at the California College of the Arts, Cia later attended Pilchuck to study under the renowned glass maestro Pino Signoretto.
She has been an integral part of Santa Fe's artist community, working at many of the glass facilities as well as collaborating with other artists when glass is used in their work.
