BLUE SWALLOWTAIL STUDIO
Testamonial from one of my students
" I have been learning the art of fused glass under the direction of JoAn McGregor for four years. She has been an inspiration to me and has allowed me to express myself through my glass projects giving technical guidance to my artistic vision. I always feel a sense of welcome in her studio and consider myself fortunate to have learned from such a glass master!" JE
To Final Friday & Open Class day Students
I am sorry to say the $10 pendant has gone the way of the price raises on my sheet glass and other glass related items. I can no longer absorb the extra cost for the various glass products we use to create our fused glass creations. I established my business 10 years ago, and opened my first studio 6 years ago and until now have not raised my prices. If I am to stay in business it is now a necessity. We do hope this will not be a hardship on any of our customers. We truly value your being a part of the Fused Glass community here at BSS.
Sincerely, JoAn Artist/Owner

~ART WASHES AWAY FROM THE SOUL THE DUST OF EVERYDAY LIFE~
WELCOME to Blue Swallowtail Studio's web site.
Every piece of glass art for sale was designed and created by JoAn on site; visitors are encouraged to watch the process and are free to ask questions. Each and every piece is one of a kind.
We have a Gallery displaying the items for sale that I have designed and fused, or created in other media.
I began designing glass jewelry in 2004, and started selling my creations at the Kansas Grown Farmers Market that Spring. The rest is history, I had so many requests to see my work other times of the year so I went looking for a store front. (The truth be known, I ran out of room at home.) The new location is my third location, and by far the best ever.

What We Do
My studio is unique in that the focus is on sharing the gift of creativity. I sell my created art in hopes that it will delight someone else. I love to help others discover their creative nature. Seeing a student's delight after their creation is fused or fired and they get to hold and enjoy it makes my work pure joy. I teach both glass classes and hand built pottery for children and adults.
Classes are designed for one or more. Scheduling is done for individuals or groups; I am quite flexible as to the hours and days.
I have been told by folks who have gone to Murano, Italy to the glass factory that my glass compares quite favorably with Murano glass. That is indeed high praise. My joy is that I have the opportunity to work with so many beautiful colors and types of glass to design and create items that I hope will enrich others lives.
This piece was designed for my friend, a graphic designer, who designed my business cards and signage. It was modified before firing.
