Charlotte Barnard Charlotte Barnard has always been fascinated with lampwork glass. Growing up in Los Angeles, some of her fondest memories were watching the flame workers at Olvera Street and taking the bus to her favorite bead store to marvel at the handmade Italian glass beads. During a trip to Venice and Murano, her fascination for handmade glass was reignite, incorporating silver fabrication to give her work originality. Most of her pieces are one of a kind, fabricated from sterling and/or fine silver sheet and wire. She constantly strives to challenge her skill set, and her work is ever evolving while maintaining whimsy and color.
