Cynthia McEwen Design

After a successful career as an Art Director and Graphic Designer, I found hot glass as a medium for creating art with my hands again rather than a computer. Using a tabletop torch, I heat the glass until it’s molten, then shape and decorate it all while it is hot and untouchable. The resulting beads and other items are then annealed in a kiln for long-term durability. I try and share a little bit of myself within every piece. My new work is incorporating the glass into other forms of art with mixed media.

Stained Glass introduced me to the world of glass. Moving into fusing glass gave me more wiggle room and freedom of expression.Now that I am in the world of lampworking I am able to be very spontaneous making beads, I follow the direction of the molten glass, I love texture and I love color.

I make work paying tribute to Chicago’s history and architecture, from home and building portraits to maps of the city’s landmarks. I work mainly in pen and ink, with occasional digital watercolor, and offer custom work, original pieces, and prints using a variety of methods.

I’ve been beading and designing for 20 years. I enjoy redoing something old into something new that can be enjoyed and never goes out of style.
