Linda Weiss - Fused Art

Linda Weiss’s work can be seen at The Gallery ABQ in Albuquerque. 

Linda moved to Albuquerque in 1997 after having moved throughout the United States, for careers with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Trained in Civil Engineering/Hydrosystems, Linda received her BSCE from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and her MSCE from Virginia Polytechnic and State University. 

Before discovering fused glass, Linda made stained glass windows for her friends and family for about 20 years. Her stained-glass windows are in peoples’ houses in Massachusetts, Nevada, Illinois, South Carolina, and New Mexico. But when Linda took a fused glass jewelry class about 15 years ago, she was hooked. Linda fell in love with how the properties of glass could be changed by firing it in a kiln.  Besides the bright, happy colors that can be achieved through fused glass techniques, glass that has been fired in a kiln takes on new shapes and properties that are almost always a surprise.

Inspired by Dale Chihuly (glass plants), other glass artists, and glass classes offered over Zoom during the Pandemic (glass plates and sculptures), Linda has been trying new ways to look at and use glass. Linda and two fellow artists will have a Salon show “Perspectives,” at The Gallery ABQ for the month of April 2023. The reception will be on April 7.
