Dimarco del Vetro's Profile


Bio

The fire-breathing dragon representing DiMarco del Vetro symbolizes the fierce determination to create form from glass and fire that has earmarked artist, Deborah DiMarco. With a background in fine art & illustration and off-set web printing & graphics, Deb turned to glass as a medium for 3-D art and design. Seeing molten glass as pigment waiting to be sculpted into form, she enjoys the discipline of working at the torch. Striving for perfection controlling a hot medium is especially interesting. "Working with glass makes me feel like an alchemist, bringing me closer to the elements of earth and space. I am totally drawn to this medium. It is always a challenge and amazes me and gives me surprises." Deb enjoys sculpting whimsical creatures, each piece created with its own personality, formed from fire, born at the torch. She also works with kiln cast glass, fused & slumped glass and creates one-of-a kind jewelry designs using her own hand-made glass beads and pendants. Ms. DiMarco has taught at the Walk-In Workshop of Corning Museum of Glass and has also served as Administrator to the Carlisle School of Glass Art in Millville, NJ. Currently she is working and teaching from her studio in Salem, NJ where she lives with Abby and Jango her two Bouvier des Flandres dogs.

Clear Fusible Glass Tiles, February 25, 2009 5 stars
Pros
As a glass art instructor, I order these tiles again and again for my students. They are equally perfect for small project classes and beginner's lessons as well as for more advanced students wishing to make larger works. They also come in handy for artists who don't have large kilns and the 4" x 4" size is great for test firings and to work out new patterns and ideas. I highly recommend these Clear Fusible Glass Tiles for fusing and slumping projects.
Cons
It would be nice if they were available in a 6" x 6" size.
