Fused Glass Artist, Anna Curnes
Anna Louise Curnes, dubbed Anna Lou by her mother early on, is a Dallas-based artist with a true love for all things Southern. She studied under fused glass artist and welder Becky Johnson, glass-blower Mark Mitsuda, Glass Master Diego Bottacin of Murano, Italy, and glass-blower Joe Ivacic.
After many successful exhibitions in both Dallas and Chicago, Anna began her own art studio in 2018 in the heart of the Dallas Design District where her glass artwork and works in progress can be admired and acquired.
What makes Anna’s glass art so powerful and empowering is that she takes broken pieces of glass and puts them back together in a way that's far more beautiful than they ever could have been before they were shattered - literally creating beauty from brokenness.
From small sculpted flowers to large-scale glass installations, Anna’s work definitely pushes the boundaries; creating fearless and prolific statement pieces.
“Our first exposure to Anna’s artistic talent came when visiting the ALG Collective. Captivated by the beauty and intricacy of Anna’s artwork, I knew that it would fit perfectly into our home but I did not know how best to incorporate and display Anna’s incredible works. Fear not, Anna not only offered suggestions about how best to bring her work to life but she actually came to our home and created a gorgeous wall of glass flowers along with accent lighting. The experience was incredible and we truly relished the passion and joy that Anna brought to the project. We could not be happier with the result.“
