Charlotte Arvelle Behrens is an independent studio glass artist who works full-time in her Northwestern Illinois studio/gallery. With over twenty-nine years of glass experience she creates kiln fired glass art. All of her works are hand-crafted originals and are noted for the quality of their material,color and composition. Her pieces range from large sculptures, wall pieces, lighting and smaller ornaments and suncatchers.
Charlotte shares “Working with glass has been a journey to merge reality, spirit, and passion together in my work. By taking a common substance, in my case glass, along with themes and symbols which have evoked mankind’s emotions throughout the ages, I hopefully have transformed my glass into art to appeal to modern imaginations.
All my glass art is handmade, here in my studio, by myself along with the part time help of my husband and my good friend Mary, who also has been working in glass for 25 years. My cat Russell however does not help in anyway.”
