With a pile of recycled bottles and glassware, she carefully heated them until they reached a point of liquidation; hot molten glass.  Then, from what had appeared to be waste, the glass was craftily blown and twisted into beautiful pieces of art – sea animals, vegetables, vases, plants, all appeared before the audience’s eyes.  This was the scene at a resort on the Island of St John where Ann Mitchell was a visiting artist.  Today, she can be found in her studio or at local craft fairs around Poway sharing her unique art form.  

Since 1998 when she received her formal training, Ann has been creating custom glass art pieces of many varieties.  Her work ranges from a simple shot glass, to ornate glass flowers, to colorful sea life.  Growing up in a family of jewelers, painters, and decorators, it’s not surprising that Ann has a natural talent and ability to use her creative edge in her art.  She applies her observations to her pieces, often becoming inspired from a nature walk, or an ocean dive.  Each piece she creates is unique and has special meaning.  For her, the creative aspects of her work are constantly growing, changing, and taking on new forms and styles.  Ann also credits Scott Kempton of Black Sheep Glass for many aspects of her work.  Together, they collaborate on ideas and techniques to further expand their skill.  

What’s unique about hand blown glass?  Everything.  Each piece is unique, one of its kind.  Glass does not deteriorate.  As a gift, you can be comfortable that it will be around for many years.  You can be sure that it will be matchless for its owner.  Hand blown glass will be sole to, and soul of, the artist that created it.  

If you’d like to learn more about Ann Mitchell or her craft, you can visit her webpage at http://www.glassartalmstudio.com.  She will also be a featured artist at the 13th Annual Galaxy of Glass at the Fallbrook Art Center May 23rd – June 27th.  Or, if you’re in the Poway area, you may cross her path on the first Saturday of the month at the Poway Arts and Crafts Guild.  Here you can meet Ann and other artists that will display and discuss their art or craft.  Having lived in Poway for over 25-years, Ann is a wonderful source of information about Poway, art, and her passion for glasswork.
