Melissa Reché

Artist statement:

Inspired by past and present experiences and the beauty of the world around me, I manipulate glass through a variety of techniques to highlight the versatility of the medium to convey thoughts, images, feelings and reactions. My art is influenced by my theatrical and musical background and love of the outdoors while leveraging my international experiences studying art, culture, and languages. Playing with reflected and transmitted light, varying intensity of hues, and manipulating opalescent and transparent glasses I create mood, emotion and imagery in my artwork. Fascinated by endless experimentation, I often lay awake wondering, “Ooooh, what if I tried this….?”
