Cathie Anders Fitzjohn
Cathie is a self taught glass artist. She began working with glass in 1980 as a stained glass artist. Creating custom stained glass windows for homes and businesses throughout the southeast Cathie was able to combine her love of drawing and painting in glass. Her current work is fused glass or kiln formed glass involving layers of glass powders, frit (small pieces of glass), and vitrograph stringers. Each piece undergoes multiple firings in the kiln as more and more layers of powders are applied to create depth and dimension. Cathie also works with reactive glass to give an organic look to her landscapes and trees.
