Karen & Jasen Willenbrink-Johnsen, a husband and wife team, are equally accomplished glass artists who share a love of nature and bird watching. They work collaboratively to find ways to translate the colors, patterns, and textures of flora, rocks, and animals into amazing glass sculptures. And the friends they have invited for this group exhibition are all prominent glass artists in the Pacific Northwest.

This exhibit will also feature the works created by their close friends:

A testimony to her love of nature, Karen Willenbrink-Johnsen's work is the result of countless hours of observation and decades being immersed in the glass-working experience. Jasen Johnsen, alongside his substantial glass sculpting skills, is also accomplished in metalworking and tool making. The couple work in their Hot Glass studio in Bow, Wash. When they are not making glass, they conduct sculpting workshops worldwide.
