Original Handcrafted Art & Fused Glass

This site showcases the works of Ilene Phelan and is filled with handcrafted pottery and fused glass art to give as a gift or treasure for your personal collection.

Studio Art's gallery of handcrafted pottery reflects a blend of fine art, ceramics, and sculpture. Each piece is unique. Techniques focus on traditional raku as well as horsehair. They both achieve unanticipated results.

Studio Art's gallery of fused glass art reveals the endless diversity of glass.  Whether it is color, shape, texture, pattern, or the blending of them all, it allows me the opportunity to create infinite designs, for ornaments, pendants or works of fused glass art.

Thank you for your interest in my handcrafted pottery and fused glass. We all need beauty in our world and it is my hope that you find it here.

Statement From
The Artist

 

My passion for clay has evolved into an ethereal balance between the limitations I place upon each piece I create and the beauty that is crafted as a result of those boundaries. Each piece becomes a unique creation. Handcrafted pottery teaches me patience. It challenges me to think about who I am and where I want to go. It offers me an avenue to explore with my hands what is in my heart. This artistic journey allows me the freedom of expression through the passion and pleasure that comes from creating something beautiful out of mud!  Please visit my gallery of handcrafted pottery and enjoy.
