Kathy received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Buffalo. She and her husband, Rolf Wagner, a self taught artist, were introduced to Dichroic Glass by Diane Weiner in 2007 and fell in love with it immediately. Together they began experimenting in one of a kind jewelry pieces. Seeing the amazing results from firing the glass coated with multiple layers of sprayed metallic oxides, continues to fascinate Kathy, particularly as each individual work of art carries an array of unique color, shifting as the piece is angled. Kathy and Rolf eventually branched out in size, incorporating glass with wood, canvas and metal for wall art, and creating molds for slumped glass pieces. Their enjoyment has resulted in awards for their pieces in various juried exhibitions.
