My name is Alison Slaff, and I have a fused glass business, Equinox Glass. I have been working with fused glass since 2007 when I started working at Glassworks Studio in Morristown, NJ. I completely fell in love and 15 years later I still love working with glass.
While I lived in Germany from 2017-2021 I started making jewelry with the fused glass cabochons that I would make in bulk while visiting family back in the US. I incorporate polymer clay and metal wire into my jewelry designs, alongside the fused glass components.
Upon moving back to the states last year, I was able to officially launch Equinox Glass and set up my home studio. I have since begun making pieces inspired by everyday life and the hobbies I relied on during quarantine, such as reading and gardening. I’ve also always been inspired by the mystical, so I enjoy symbols, mandalas, evil eyes and other magical imagery. My work is available in my Etsy shop, and in a couple of local shops in Morris County, NJ. I have also been selling my wares in local craft shows.
Recently, I started a YouTube channel where every Fused Glass Friday I post a process video of myself making a project and the final fired result. I have really enjoyed sharing my work in the this way and love the feedback I’ve gotten from the glass community on YouTube.
