by Katy Bergman Cassell
Inspired by drives through the rural landscape, Katy Bergman Cassell's enamel artwork is made by melting and fusing layers of colored glass powder onto copper sheet in a kiln. Some of the layers are opaque, and some are transparent. Her work is inspired by reflecting on the world around her and the reflective nature of the enamel itself. She teaches drawing, metals, and enameling at Kent State University and lives in Akron, Ohio. Katy Bergman Cassell designed the Dragon of Wishes Hopes and Dreams that is on permanent display outside the University Hospital Main Lobby.
