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.
