Flameworked glass beads & jewelry

Kristina Logan is recognized internationally for her glass beads. She is an independent artist who lives and works in New Hampshire.

She was one of only four artists selected for exhibition in the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery Invitational: Four Discoveries in Craft, 2002. “Logan’s beads exist in their own right as art… “, writes Kenneth Trapp, Curator-in-Charge at the Renwick Gallery. Articles about her work have appeared in numerous publications–Glass magazine, Ornament magazine, Beadwork magazine, Bead & Button magazine, Lapidary Journal, and La Revue de la Céramic et du Verre.

Kristina served as president of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers from 1996 – 1998. She travels extensively throughout the United States and Europe teaching workshops and lecturing on contemporary glass beads and jewelry. Kristina has taught beadmaking at such well known schools as The Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, Urban Glass in Brooklyn, New York, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Maine, Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina, Musée-Atelier du Verre à Sars-Poteries in France, and Centro Studio Vetro and Abate Zanetti in Venice, Italy.

The artist writes that beads “are part of my lifelong fascination with art and ornamentation. Glass beads form an historical thread, connecting people and cultures throughout our history”. Kristina’s work and desire to educate has been an inspiration for many glass beadmakers throughout the world.

Kristina’s work has been collected by The Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Renwick Gallery, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston MA, and the Corning Museum of Glass, Corning NY, and the Musée du Verre de Sars-Poteries, Sars-Poteries, France. The Corning Museum of Glass produced a DVD video in 2009 of Kristina’s lampwork beadmaking as part of their Master Class Series of videos.
