Glass Designs by Daryl Cohen

A 40-year fascination with light, the color blending of transparent watercolors, combined with a lifelong love of all things Judaica came to fruition when Daryl moved to Tucson with her husband Kevin, pictured at left, in 2005. Daryl had spent most of her life as a cancer center administrator. In 1989 she began to paint and focused entirely on watercolors. The blending of the transparent colors was the key attraction. Although there were times when she sold her work, it was mostly for self-gratification. After Daryl and Kevin moved to Tucson, Daryl was able to focus entirely on art. The surroundings, the landscape, the art-filled environment sparked a renewed interest in color. The Sonoran desert sun, the luxury of time, and the long-missed availability of space combined under the stars and her designs were born and matured. Soon, Kevin was working alongside Daryl in the studio. Daryl and Kevin use transparent, opaque, and dichroic glass to design, sculpt, cut, cold fuse and kiln formed glass. They have 3 kilns, work in their home studio and spend almost all of their time creating. Enjoy each piece; although they may be similar, each is handmade, one of a kind, and made with love, like our Jewish history, like our lives, like the colors that surround us.
