About Lisa Hilquist

I began my creative career in high school where I used to draw in pen & ink and taught myself calligraphy. In college, I started off as an Art Major, but couldn't decide on any one discipline, so completed my degree in graphic design/visual communication. Still not content with limiting myself to any one medium, I incorporate multiple techniques and media into my work. My current passion is working with reactive hot glass by manipulating the reactive properties of colored glass minerals to each other. One of the reaction catalysts is fine silver, which I also incorporate in the form of Precious Metal Clay (PMC). My most recent glasswork is finished using freeform wire-wrapping techniques I have developed over the past 5 years which I call "bird's nest" wire wrapping. Each piece of my finished jewelry is a unique, handcrafted piece of art.
