Teddie Hathaway

Sausalito, CA

Without a background in formal art training, I used the early years of my foray into glass art for experimenting and finding my voice. Nearly a decade ago I decided to work primarily with old window glass - one of the least recycled materials. In addition to providing me with a blank canvas, it connects with my artistic narrative that beyond appreciating our common environment, we all share responsibility for it. I primarily portray water and air - the essence of life. To achieve the soft color balance you see I reverse enamel, kiln cast, and sandblast each piece, sometimes several times. Although I have an image in mind when I begin, nothing is intended to resemble a photograph, and the work evolves in order to reach for the emotional response I seek from the viewer. Some of my art portrays a single image, and some is more of a collage, some is highly textured, and some is not, but it all remains elusive - you see what speaks to you.

Teddie hails from the tiny farming community of Nezperce, Idaho, but spent most of her career working for the Congress in Washington DC, with time off for child rearing and working in the public school system. Her calling as a glass artist working in a studio on a houseboat in Sausalito, California is quite a departure from her distinctly left-brained career.

The pursuit of art became a passion for Teddie as she approached retirement, but armed with an MBA instead of a background in fine arts, she had a lot of catching up to do, so dozens of art and glass classes followed in the next few years.

Teddie uses recycled window glass in her kiln formed work - she believes it speaks to her artistic narrative referencing our fragile shared environment. Her work has been exhibited in shows from the west coast (Washington state and California) to the east (Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and DC) and internationally in Germany. One of her pieces exhibited there was retained in the permanent collection of the Waldmuseum in Zweisel, Germany.

She has taught various glass techniques at Washington Glass School in Mt. Rainier, Maryland, The Crucible and Studio One in Oakland, California, Grand Theatre Center for the Arts in Tracy, California, and Public Glass, the Museum of Craft and Design and Waldorf High School in San Francisco.
