Meet Barbara Vandecreek

This summer I retired after more than 35 years in public school education, and now I enjoy making glass beads and creating jewelry.  In 2005 I was working in Springfield and took a lampworking at the Springfield Museum of Art and I have been hooked on designing glass ever since. 

For me lampwork is an art that constantly challenges. There's something mesmerizing about the torch flame and watching the glass go from a solid to a liquid and back again while coaxing it into a specific shape. It's an endless quest of color, design and technique -- always exciting, sometimes frustrating, and never boring!

A major support and mover for continuing education of new techniques and skills is my membership in a Southwest Ohio gathering of lampwork artists. 

Additionally, I live in Beavercreek, love to read, and to bake.  My husband and I have two daughters and four delightful grandchildren.
