Dorothy Hafner

Dorothy Hafner, glass artist, ceramist and industrial designer, combines her contemporary artistic sensibility with an exuberant palette and idiosyncratic approach to pattern and shape. Straddling the line between design and fine art, she has become an innovative talent working in glass after years as a leading edge voice in ceramics.
Hafner's graphic and vibrant glass panels and vessels evoke a buoyancy and lyricism which are exaggerated through the smoothness, translucency and inherent color saturation of the glass. The panels, consisting of multiple fused layers, convey vast dimension, both technically and conceptually due to the painstaking complexity of the process.
