About Stacey

For me, creativity is a love letter to spirit

 

Girabaldi Fish by Stacey and Leland DennickI’m a fused glass artist who creates home décor, sculptures, wall art, boxes, jewelry and mosaics. My husband Leland and I offer classes at our studio in Sebastopol. Topics include: first fusing class, incorporating photos into fused glass, dichroic glass jewelry making and plant fossils in glass. Call or email for more info.

I’m also a Digital Storyteller, who uses words and images to tell my client’s stories online. You can find my artwork at stores, open studiosfairs and online in my Etsy shop called Stacey Alysa.


My work with glass began with stained glass windows in the 1980’s and detoured through 16 years of corporate video editing.  I discovered fused glass in 2002, and now specialize in bright uplifting designs, many with painted details.  My primary instructors include Peter McGrain, Avery Anderson, Richard LaLonde and Marty Meade. I’m inspired by, and collaborate with, my husband Leland Dennick, who is also a glass artist.  I received an MFA in creative writing from the wonderful program at University of San Francisco.

Back in 2002 I couldn’t find a pair of lightweight gold-filled earrings, so I learned to make my own.  Addicted to gemstones, I’ve been making jewelry ever since.

My goal is to bring beauty, joy and whimsy into everyday life

    Hi Stacey. I’m a fused glass artist, too. I am in the process of converting a garden shed into an art studio and I’m trying to figure out what the best configuration of furniture, storage and display will be. Would you mind posting some photos of what your workspace looks like? I’d greatly appreciate it! Thanks, Melanie

    • Hi Melanie,
      Saw your inspiring collection of studios on Pinterest. I’ve posted a photo of the studio here. Things I love about my glass studio – huge kiln, table that’s high enough that I don’t have to slouch, wooden storage area with slots for glass to stand up in, lots of light. Set up as much table area as you can. I always run out of working room. I like this idea for a future post.

    • Hi Melanie,
      I just posted some more photos of the studio. Thanks for asking.
      Stacey
