Sandy Dukeshire

Sandy Dukeshire is an internationally recognized glass artist and has been working with the medium for 20 years.

 Her love for glass started with a community stained glass class in her hometown of Andover Massachusetts. A short time later she enrolled in an advanced stained glass class at the Museum School of Fine Arts. After several years, the natural progression began when she enrolled in a glass blowing class at Massachusetts College of Art.

 Around the same time a good friend gave her a large used kiln  and there was no turning back. She began fusing glass like crazy. A second glass blowing class at Mass Art sealed the deal. She was hooked.

 An apprenticeship at Hurstin Glass and Metal followed. It was there that she honed her glassblowing skills and transformed from student to studio assistant.

 The teaching of hundreds of workshops including stepping stones, jewelry, glass fusing, stained glass, and glass blowing has rounded out her career.

 A prolific artist, she has collected a large inventory of work, which has led to selling her creations thru several local stores. Private commission work continues to be a specialty, and many of these works can be found sprinkled around the country.
