“I love color, and I love how colors blend together to stimulate our imaginations. I love creating a sense of tone and space utilizing color- whether it is a still summer night, a brooding storm on the horizon, a warm house amidst a wintery blizzard, a strong gust of wind, a crisp Autumn evening, or a dreary day of pouring rain. But more than just our imaginations, I believe color and tone combine to kindle our emotions. Art makes us feel something. It takes us somewhere other than where we’re standing. We remember things we’ve forgotten. We experience a world we’d never thought of. A great work of art draws us into it.” – Patrick Kochanasz
Mariah Cunningham is an army veteran, mother of two young children, student and self taught artist of many mediums. After stumbling into a local glass studio she fell in love with creating enameled jewelry. Mariah hand cuts the copper shapes, applies thin layers of powered glass, and fires each piece in her electric kiln. New to her collection are pieces featuring acid etched copper with mesmerizing textures and colors.
