Blue & Green Glass Plate-Mimi Boston

  • This whimsical dish by Mimi Boston is approximately 11"x11"2.25". Although it is food safe, it is not heat safe. Please handwash! 

  • Mimi Boston makes fused glass bowls and platters. The functional pieces are food safe but are not tempered glass and so not heat safe.  She shows her work in galleries in Birmingham, Montgomery, Tuscaloosa and Auburn.  Mimi earned two degrees has taken glass classes at the Appalachian Center for Craft and at the Bullseye Glass Factory in Portland Oregon. She grew up in Virginia, lived in many states and abroad, and is pleased to be settled in her chosen hometown of Birmingham.

    The vibrant color, translucence, and smooth tactile qualities of glass attracted Mimi to this medium.  She remembers her mother quilting as she cuts and pieces glass. The glass pieces are fused flat in a kiln to 1440 degrees. The bowls go the kiln a second time over a mold and take 24 hours to make. Curved strings of glass are pulled through a vitrigraph which are elements in some pieces.  Much of her inspiration comes from the play of light on water or light on leaves. Dappled light, the contrast of shade and light, is a frequent image in her mind as she creates.
