Helen Rudy


Bright colors and graceful patterns hallmark Helen

Rudy's unique style – a style you will love to showcase.

Each crisp and clean design reveals global influences

and modern flare. Helen's attention to color, detail, lay-

ering, and saturation highlight the interplay of light on



Almost entirely self-taught, Helen's method involves

measuring and hand-cutting each piece of glass. By

layering many different colors on top of each other,she

creates a bright and bold design.
Her design is then fired in a kiln to 1460˚ in order to fuse

together. Often a second, third, or fourth firing is needed

to shape the final piece. Through this unique process,

Helen may work with the glass in the kiln for several

days before the final, one-of-a-kind piece emerges.
