Meredith has always been drawn to color, pattern, shadow, and texture. When she began glass blowing in 2005 she was looking for ways to incorporate these elements into my work and was having a difficult time getting it just right. Everything changed when she took Intro to Fibers class and fell in love with weaving, screenprinting, and hand dyeing. She began to use the principals of these techniques and started using flat glass and a process called kiln forming to get the results she wanted.
Glass is an ideal medium for her work due to its transparency, light and shadow producing qualities, and the ability to layer glass to produce secondary colors. Through heat manipulation she creates the different textures and add depth to the work.
In addition to glass blowing, she spends any free time at her sewing machine making vintage style aprons and quilting.
Meredith lives and works in Nashville, TN. She, with her partner Chris Reich, have started REG Design and Supply, a one of a kind collaboration and design studio. They are building their own hot shop, which is the only of it's kind in Nashville.
Meredith loves to talk about glass, so feel free to to call her at 615-476-3235 or email at with any questions or inquiries you may have.
