Cicada Glassworks

I am Taylor Carlton, a mixed media artist with experience in garments, jewelry, sculpture, and most recently stained glass. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in Fiber Arts and Ceramics from MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) and previously worked in the garment production industry as a sewist, trainer, and a manager.
 Currently I am focusing my creative energies on nature inspired stained glass art and decor that frequently employs organic materials. In my contemporary work I embrace and borrow from natural patterns, infusing materials ranging from delicate flowers to shed snake skins to recreate spirals, fractals, and other such organic structures in my stained glass creations.
