Fused glass artist Kat Huddleston embraces nature in her art, both in her dichroic jewelry and her fused glass sculptures. Inspired by the four elements in nature… fire, water, wind, and earth, the award-winning artist uses the organic elements of her materials to bring the glass to life. While Huddleston has been an artist and writer most of her life, she is an emerging glass artist who discovered glass four years ago and hasn’t looked back. She’s been in over 50 juried art shows, has exhibited in several group shows in Chicago galleries, and won “Best in Glass” at the Fountain Square Art Festival in Evanston, IL and “Best in Show” in the Contemporary Art Gallery’s Online for the ALL Women in 3D/Mixed Media competition. She also now shows her work both jewelry and fused glass at Spectrum Art Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut. When Huddleston isn’t creating her glass objects, she teaches advanced fused glass and art at the Bevery Arts Center in Chicago. Huddleston lives in Chicago with her husband, Charles, her two kitty helpers, Ziggy and Reggie, and her three kilns.
