Cat Hargis and Black Cat Glass began as a second career after spending 15 years training television News Anchors and Reporters. She lived in London as the exclusive trainer for the BBC and recently returned from 2 years in the Middle East where she helped put a major network on air. During that time she began to explore and develop her unique style and to move toward becoming a full time artist.
Cat's distinctive style is characterized with embellishments of jewels and natural stones, including pearl, agate, labradorite and crystal incorporated into the patterns of the glass. The result is a merging of color and stone in natural, organic fusions. These mixed media pieces challenge the traditional fused glass style and stretch the boundaries of warm glass as art.
