Verne has worked in fused glass for the past twenty years. Previous artwork was represented in graphic design, mural painting and mentoring through teaching. Her degree in fine art and love of drawing is what motivates her fused glass designs. She created a painterly process of working strictly with glass powders and that technique is represented in her Fall leaf collections.
The fragility and strength of glass correlates to the characteristics of objects and actions in nature. This influences her passion to find appreciation in those organic properties. The truth in nature provides a comforting space to linger, the beauty in fine craft provides a permanent moment to behold.
