Zeekdog Studios’ designer, Dolores Ashkar, has been playing with kiln-fired (fused) glass for over thirty years. Before that there were twenty years of playing with glass beads, preferably vintage. It must have been the hours spent as a kid, staring at the beautiful stained glass windows in church which inspired her ongoing love of light and color.
When the dichroic coatings, which were invented for the space industry, became available in the 1990’s glass artists went crazy with a whole new playground and Dolores was no exception.
Dolores is creating some fabulous pieces including earrings, bracelets, fancy magnets, art dishes and more for Zeekdog Studios’ first year at Made In Clarkdale.
