Addicted to glass—that’s Sara W. Ranson. In love with glass for years, getting hooked happened about eight years ago when her daughter talked her into accompanying her to a beginning glass bead making class. Since receiving her first torch for her birthday and an oxygen concentrator for Christmas, Sara has been creating hand-crafted glass beads and jewelry and selling them through art shows and galleries. The hook went in deeper when Ann took a “warm glass” class and learned to fuse and slump glass. Making artistic and functional pieces of glass that include photo frames, bowls, and trays, Sara is enjoying glass’s unpredictability, translucency, and intense colors. Her business is Ann Klem Reflections.
