About the Artist

Janet Sams

My Commitment
Janet Sams, a renowned international shattered glass artist, creates stunning pieces for private
and commercial spaces. Your walls deserve innovative, one-of-a-kind works of art, not inferior,
mass-produced items that look common. Choose nature’s brilliance expressed through colorful,
light-catching art from discarded glass and intelligent creativity.
My Joy
With degrees in chemical engineering and chemistry, alongside an MBA, my creativity and
intellect nurture my career as a successful internationally acclaimed glass artist. Using scrap
blown glass, cracked glass, fused glass, and glass stringers to create premium artwork allows me
to express nature’s brilliance in 3D glass.
My Desire
I’ve always been fascinated with 3D art in all forms, so transforming glass scraps and other
unwanted materials into gorgeous works of art is a real pleasure. I understand how wanting
creative, comment-worthy artwork feels, so I create glass art pieces that draw attention and
invite conversation.
My Passion
Reducing my carbon footprint has always been a personal goal, so blending the environment
into my art is a core value. Unless otherwise commissioned, most of my designs center on
nature's beauty and colors.
My Preferred Medium
Broken glass is my current medium. I’ve worked with mosaic, acrylic, fabric, and now glass. I
love the vibrant colors and random shapes of the glass, which cause me to think outside the box
to develop my next shattered glass creation.
I look for texture, shape, and color when I source my glass from glass blowers and other facilities
rich with discarded glass shards, tempered glass, and stained glass. Finding unwanted glass that
I can upcycle into coastal-themed glass art thrills me.
I’m never sure how I will use the pieces I find, but I know they are pleasing to look at, and I keep
a significant cache of glass for all projects! I believe in helping our ecology by recycling and
repurposing glass into nature-themed art. Interior designers, homeowners, and gallery owners
revel in my stunning shattered glass art.
My Inspiration
Hiking, kayaking, gardening, and travel give me mental images of broken glass art that fuel my
creative work. My friends and family give me a positive perspective on the artistic process.
Working with glass is a passion, everything I create is a joy! I know I have finished a piece when
I smile spontaneously. I definitely have a resin obsession and that’s what creates the glassiest
sealife-themed glass art.
