Teddy Devereux, Glass Artist

This exhibit by glass artist, Teddy Devereux, is about fusing art and science. The glass pictures were inspired by biological imagery or photographs of natural patterns. During her scientific career, Teddy was intrigued by the life forms she studied under the microscope and by the beauty she perceived in the research going on in her laboratory. These fused glass pictures have underlying scientific themes, although the style tends toward the abstract rather than the literal. She views each piece as an experiment and finds it exhilarating to open the kiln and see the results of the fusing process. Fortunately, with experience, the results of these experiments have become more predictable.The colors, textures, and depth of view that can be achieved with kiln-formed glass are particularly appealing, and the possibilities for creativity with fused glass seem endless.

Ms. Devereux lives in Durham, NC and has a B.S. in Botany and M.S. in Microbiology from Duke (1966, 1970). While pursuing a career as a scientist and since retirement, she has taken many workshops in fused glass art and now teaches fused glass techniques. She has a lifelong interest in nature, and her art tends to have a scientific slant. One of her artworks was chosen for the cover art of the May, 2011 issue of the British Columbia Medical Journal. Also, she is a featured artist in the book Sculpture and Design with Recycled Glass by Cindy Ann Coldiron, published in October, 2011.
