Susan Ward creates unique limited edition glass plates, bowls, trays and paperweights as well as picture frames, desk blotters and tables with painstakingly applied handcrafted original designs. She combines a collaged imagery with drawing and painting, reflecting a classical sensibility with a contemporary edge. Her designs are applied layer-by-layer making each an originally executed piece of art. Protected by seven coats of lacquer, these beautiful pieces are meant to be used, as well as admired. Of her artistic vision, Susan Ward says, "I believe that the subtle impact of beauty on individual lives leads to deeper, more permanent changes in society. This begins with our visual perceptions, which are influenced by our environment. By endowing functional objects with beauty, we not only feed the soul, but reinforce a sense of basic integrity in our lives."
