Kristina Logan

Kristina Logan Kristina Logan has been making glass beads for more 28 years and is recognized internationally for her precisely patterned pieces. She served as president of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers from 1996-1998. Kristina travels extensively throughout the United States and Europe teaching workshops and lecturing on contemporary glass beads and jewelry. She writes that beads “are part of my lifelong fascination with art and ornamentation. Glass beads form an historical thread, connecting people and cultures throughout our history." Kristina's work and desire to educate have been an inspiration for many glass beadmakers throughout the world. Kristina's work has been collected by The Smithsonian Museum of American Art: Renwick Gallery, Washington D.C.; The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts; The Corning Museum of Glass, Corning, New York; and the Musée du Verre de Sars-Poteries, Sars-Poteries, France. In 2009 The Corning Museum of Glass produced a DVD titled, “Beadmaking with Kristina Logan, Master Class Series VII,“ produced by Amy Schwartz. The museum has also used her iconic Cactus Bead to represent modern beadmaking on their timeline of glass beadmaking through the ages. The Corning Museum of Glass writes, “...the work of Kristina Logan stands out for its originality, sophistication, and innovation. Logan is an especially talented artist who works with flameworked glass. She makes unique and complex beads in intricate patterns whose sometimes knobby forms recall the remarkable eye beads made in ancient China. Yet Logan’s style is purely contemporary.”
