Amy Waldman
Form and symmetry are hallmarks of Amy Waldman’s work. Layering, precise dot placement, and raking allow her to create intricate patterning in her work. Amy has been making glass beads since 2001 and teaching beadmaking since 2003. She is an attentive and giving teacher who strives to be the kind of teacher she would enjoy taking classes from.

Amy finds inspiration in architecture, pottery, textiles, and nature. Her glasswork is also about footprints. The footprints we leave behind in each and everything we do and say. The footprints of glass that can be manipulated, stretched, or pushed. Each influences the elements surrounding it. One footprint pushes the next, but never supplants it. It’s a metaphor for living.
