Terisa Green has been working in glass since 2018. Before that, she was a writer, an archaeologist, and an engineer, with a B.S. in physics and a Ph.D. in archaeology. Although she’s climbed the tallest pyramid in the Western Hemisphere, jumped out of a plane, presented at NASA, and shown flintknapping to school kids, it was the kids that were the scariest—and most rewarding.
She first discovered kiln-formed glass when browsing through a catalog of stained glass supplies and realized she needed to get 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.
