Bonnie Faulkner, a Maine based artist, has been working in glass for over 20 years. Highly accomplished in many glass mediums, her work ranges from full window and wall installations for residential and commercial spaces to finely detailed items such as kitchen tiles and one-of-a-kind necklaces, bracelets, earrings and table top decor. Faulkner's glass work is very distinctive as she has mastered the ability to incorporate dichroic, fused, hand blown and stained glass into one creation. She finds combining these techniques opens up placement for glass objects in every part of one's home, where even limited lighting accentuates the work.
Faulkner graduated from the University of Southern Maine with a major in Art Education and a minors in Ceramics and Book Arts. Currently she is an MFA Candidate at Heartwood College of Art in Kennebunk, Maine. She taught art in public schools for many years until the demand for her work grew when she became a full time studio artist. She has taught glass workshops throughout Maine at Haystack Mountain School of Arts & Crafts, Maine Art Glass, Maine Art Education and Bowdoin College as well as private classes. She is represented by a number of galleries throughout New England and exclusively in New York by Figureworks Gallery. Recently, Bonnie has joined Wholly Crow Gallery at The New Dam Mill in Biddeford, Maine.
