Karen Casey Fused Glass

Karen Casey and her husband, Arlen Custer are Durham NC artists who have studied and worked with glass for over 30 years. They design fused glass jewelry, hair accessories, vases, dishes, clocks, mirrors, functional tables, and funky art pieces!  Use of a saw and a combination of dichroic and other glass give them their unique look. Designs from elegant to wild! They have enjoyed figuring out how to carefully layer glass to drip off the kiln edge to create waterfalls on tables! They enjoy traveling and exhibiting at art shows regionally especially with music!

Karen is a founding member of the Durham Craft Market and has been the Facilitator and Market Manager. She is also a speech language pathologist and member of a West African drum group. Arlen also works as a sound engineer and especially enjoys producing live recordings.
