Barb McKinlay has always been a lover of art glass. She has worked for glass companies such as Kosta Boda, Simon Pearce, and other china and giftware companies like Haviland and Jay Strongwater.After 25 years of helping to promote the work of others, Barb made a conscious plan to explore a new life as a glass artist and designer. She built a studio in her own home and taught herself how to make art glass, although her designs seemed to have always been with her somewhere, as in her notebooks of drawings, doodles, and concepts. Barb’s designs are now incorporated into contemporary, fun, useful tableware, home décor, glass paintings and mobiles.
