A native of Washington, D.C., Michele began working in kiln-formed and lampworked glass in 2002 and has studied with many acclaimed glass artists in the US and Europe. In 2005 she established Trilogy Glass Art to explore and create both functional and non-functional glass art in her Ellicott City studio. In 2010, seeking the opportunity to teach kiln-formed glass, Michele joined the Art Glass Center at Glen Echo as a Resident Artist. She is also active in the National Capital Art Glass Guild and served as a director of the guild for several years. Holding degrees in Physics and Engineering, Michele has a special interest in the material properties of glass and spends much of her time experimenting and exploring its behavior and possibilities.
Michele's glass art is on display in the Zayde Sleph Gallery at the Art Glass Center at Glen Echo and occasionally at other shows and venues in the Metropolitan DC area.
Glass is a wondrous artistic tool. It is both the controller, and yet, controllable, setting limits, conditions, properties, which, when understood and applied successfully, allow me much latitude in form and possibility of expression. My art is message driven, providing me a way to comment, explore, recognize and challenge, without words - and often as not, just have fun.

At this time, I am not teaching in my Ellicott City Studio. If you are interested in learning more about kilnformed glass, I invite you to enroll in one of the many workshops offered by the Resident Artists of the Art Glass Center at Glen Echo. For information:
