Nan Charif

Nan’s been a serious glass artist for nine years but became obsessed with glass art after her very first lesson. She started collecting beads and stringing them together 30 years ago, and her desire to create her own intricate beads drew her to making glass beads at a torch. She’s studied under the likes of Margaret Zinser, Bronwen Heilman, and Bandu Dunhum.  Nan is a member of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers and her work’s been published in glass art publications like Lammaga in Japan and the Flow Glass Art Quarterly here in the states.
