“I consider myself an artist before a glass artist. I think that gives me an edge in my glass art and I’m thankful for the gift. I feel fortunate to have been able to make my living in glass art and I love sharing the art through teaching and creating people’s ideas into custom glass for their homes and business.”
Creative Glass Carvings has been creating custom art glass (stained, fused & etched), teaching classes and offering art glass supplies to fellow glass enthusiasts in our town and online all over the United States for over 33 years. Owner, Pamela Funk, started working in art glass professionally at the age of 16. Having been an artist all her life the transition into glass was exciting and new. It became a lifelong passion that she still enjoys today and still challenges herself to find creative ways to work in glass. Working in glass fusing is the newest addition to classes offered at Creative Glass Carvings and custom work. Check the class schedule by clicking on “class schedule” on the gold bar above.
Nine years ago, in support of Paradise’s downtown revitalization, Pamela moved her studio to downtown Paradise, where her and her husband Hal added a new facade to the building and added an art gallery gift shop called Fir Street Gallery & Gifts. Her daughter Carly joined her in running the art gallery and the art glass studio by working side by side on not only creating custom stained glass, teaching stained glass and fusing classes but helping customers choose glass, demo tools and give advice on their projects. We’ve since added The Wine Room to the building. Our students love being able to enjoy a glass of wine while they work on their projects.
