Amanda discovered Sonoran Glass School during our 2019 Pumpkin Fiesta, and it was love at first sight! A life-long crafter who has tried her hand at weaving, macramé, candle-making, and card-making, glass has captured her imagination in a way that few other things have. She is enchanted by the role that chemistry and physics play in working with glass, and she has found endless ways to experiment.

Amanda has taken classes in the Warm Shop and the Hot Shop (including the semester-long class!), and she kept busy during the pandemic with our Glass at Home projects. Most recently, she has joined the SGS staff as a studio tech in our Warm Shop.
