Robin Kittleson - Geneva IL
Well known for her functional fused glass creations, Robin Kittleson captures her love of color, texture and design in every handmade piece. Using only the highest quality materials and production standards, her kiln-formed items are meant to be used, lived with, and enjoyed for years to come. With a degree in fine arts, Robin spent her initial years working as a graphic designer. This didn't always satisfy her creative needs so a side business of creating hand painted textiles was born. These were sold through wholesale fine art shows and Robin was lucky enough to have orders keeping her busy year round. A passion soon became work — painting the same thing, in the same color way from her home studio — and left her feeling isolated. She wanted to get out, interact with other people, explore and experiment. She started dabbling in other mediums, eventually finding her way to glass. Glass was the perfect medium for bringing all the things she loved together.
