Art Central is happy to welcome Tamara Walter as our newest gallery member!
Born in 1957, Tami remains a child of the 60s. While obtaining a degree in science and devoting over 36 years in the black-and-white world of engineering, she maintained her internal creative balance by continuing to pursue her love of various art disciplines. Involved in the stained-glass world of the 1980s, she has been involved in design and creation of many multi-disciplined projects.
Practicing the arts of weaving, writing, various jewelry making techniques, mixed media, mosaic and welding, she returned to her first love when she discovered the wild and wonderful world of Kiln fused glass. After many classes with well-known artists, she has set up her own studio today to dabble with the various effects temperature, color and texture have on fused glass pieces. An avid antiques collector and animal lover, many “found” items are currently being incorporated in a line Tami is creating called “Inclusions.” Much like steampunk art, “Inclusions” include items such as old keys, gears and nails captured in fused glass pieces. While creating this line, she continues to achieve an even balance of right and left brain activity by using the techniques learned while designing electrical and civil engineering projects and incorporating the textures and designs ingrained from her “flower child” past. She continues to use vibrant colors and specialty glass to achieve beautiful garden art, vessels, wind chimes and whimsical glass creatures while continuing to learn the newest and latest fusion techniques.
Come meet her, and see her amazing glass work, tonight at Art After Dark, along with the wonderful work of all of our guest artists participating in our new show “Little Treasures” …
