Meet Rachel Pitt of Beverly Hills, MI, who combines beautiful papers and glass to form Glassology. She uses chiyogami and designer papers to create fun jewelry, magnets, and accessories.How long have you been creating your art work?
It's been over five years now!
What makes your art work unique or distinctive?
My work is all about highlighting the beautiful papers. I work with chiyogami paper, lokta paper, and other designer papers to find just the right look. Do you have any notable awards or accomplishments?
I swam varsity at Michigan State. I help the school record in the 200 Breaststroke for 15 years.
More recently, I was given two awards from my kids on the EXACT same day:
- Best mom ever
- Worst mom ever
This little project all started with a small craft project of making glass gem magnets with a few supplies from Michaels. I was looking for an easy recycling activity to do with kids at my then day job, where I was a Recycling Coordinator. I had fun making magnets, so I ordered supplies to make a few pendants.
For a long time I wanted to be a vet. I love animals and science, and it seemed like a perfect choice. Then I realized that vets are mostly detested by their furry clientele. That's kind of a bummer. What do you enjoy doing besides making art?
I'm terrible at sitting still, so I'm always doing something. I love working out - biking, boot camp classes, swimming...etc. I also enjoy doing home improvement projects, traveling, and hanging out with my kiddos. Quotes you love or live by:
