Lauren Ekman lives, plays and makes glass beads in her California studio since 1999. She has been an educator, including a school principal, for decades. Her passion is working on the torch and seeing the redredmelt of the glass as it turns into a bead or critter. The creations lean toward abstract color combinations that stir up happiness and reflect a modern garden. People get to wear the smooth magic of melted glass in the colors of a well-balanced garden. Sometimes you will see a cottage garden, a vegetable, and herb, or cactus garden. Often it's just the colors of a single fruit or flower. She continues to travel the country to learn from other flameworkers and teaches at The Crucible.
