Fused glass artiFst Jacki Cohen is fascinated by bold color, vibrant design, and the fiery beauty of the Sonoran Desert. Largely self taught, Cohen finds inspiration everywhere. From the vivid natural scenery surrounding her North Scottsdale studio, to a clever wardrobe ensemble, to a stacked pesto Caprese salad, Cohen?s unique eye for color and design fuels her to re-envision ordinary objects into extraordinary expressions of fused glass artwork.
Having worked in fused glass design for over a decade, Cohen has a knack for creating both functional and decorative pieces for homes, work spaces, and one-of-a-kind gifts. A juried artist, Cohen is consistently participating in some of the most prestigious juried exhibits and shows in the Southwest.
?I?ve worked in many art media,? explains Cohen. ?But fused glass is what ignites my spirit. Once glass reaches a heat of 1500 degrees, it becomes soft and pliable. By carefully cutting and layering sheets of glass you are given limitless possibilities.?
She?s been featured in Phoenix Magazine 2019, Artsy Shark 2019, Voyage Phoenix, Arizona Jewish Life, Phoenix Jewish News and North Scottsdale Lifestyle magazines, has won numerous awards in juried shows around the state, and was the winner of Best of Jewish Phoenix Arts and Culture in May, 2018.
Jacki accepts commissions and welcomes visitors into her studio by appointment.
