The article profiles Kim Kamens, an artist, born in 1974 in Louisville, Kentucky. She grew up in the farm near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and majored in glass at the Tyler School of Arts in Philadelphia. Kamens started incorporating wood, epoxy, burlap, resin, and other materials into her glass works. According to Kamens, she wanted to be in a studio, make artwork, and show in galleries. She also started making large-scale carved wood panels with one chisel. Moreover, after several years of making large carvings, she decided to do something similar in glass, with several thousand feet of glass cane which she pulled herself, cut into small pieces, and used to make the image.
