Gayla Lee Glass Artist

Between 2 feet of snow this past weekend and another potential foot today, the DC area is getting pounded by powder. This hasn’t kept me from finishing my most recent project. “Gayla Lee Glass Artist” is a short bio documentary on my friend Gayla Lee.

The idea was to film her creation process and tell her story.

Beautiful platters, jewelry, and assorted glass based art by Gayla Lee

Specifically, Gayla works in glass fusion which is the baking of glass in a kiln.

Bring the heat

She was kind enough to indulge me in filming her for my first project for Film & Video Production II at American U. Gayla teaches at the Corning Institute and has been filmed before so she was very natural on camera.A work in progress

Her house, situtated on the South River in Annapolis, MD, provided a gorgeous setting for the interview.

We used almost all natural lighting except for the kiln scenes and the interview. Check out her work at gaylalee.com and support an aspiring artist!
