Kathy received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Buffalo many years ago. Rolf is a self-taught artist. They were introduced to Dichroic Glass in 2007 and it was love at first sight! Together they began to experiment with this remarkable glass. Starting with small one of a kind jewelry pieces. Seeing the amazing results of each firing, they kept going larger and larger in size and began incorporating glass with wood, canvas and metal for wall art and sculptures. They then started making their own molds to slump and drape plates, fish and faces. Rolf and Kathy have won numerous awards in Corpus Christi area exhibits and shows. Rolf is currently on the Board at the Art Center of Corpus Christi. Kathy is a partner in Studio C, Art and Fine Gifts. What is dichroic glass? There are many stories how it was developed. The favorite is…developed by NASA for telescopes in space travel. Dichroic glass is sprayed in a vacuum chamber with multiple microscopic layers of metallic oxides which give it the optical properties. Dichroic glass has a transmitted color and a completely different reflected color. This causes an array of color to be displayed, shifting depending on the angle of view. Due to variations in the firing process, individual results can never be exactly predicted, so each piece of fused dichroic glass is unique.
