Terisa Green has been working in glass since 2018. Before that, she was a writer, an archaeologist, and an engineer. She’s climbed the tallest pyramid in the Western Hemisphere, jumped out of a plane, and shown flintknapping to school kids–all the scary things.

She first discovered kiln-formed glass when browsing through a catalog of stained glass supplies and realized she couldn’t possibly be without a kiln. It’s the wide array of colors, shapes, and sheens that appeal, and she favors the same in her work.

Terisa and her husband live in Los Angeles where plans are afoot to add a kitty to the household.
