New York-based artist, Roxann Slate grew up in a family of glass artists and has been flameworking since she was 10 years old. She has worked extensively at the Corning Museum of Glass with glass artists from around the world. Roxann works in the interplay of what she wants the glass to become and what the glass wants to be: Each piece is negotiation. It's important to her that every piece is well crafted and easy to wear. The jewelry doesn't live until it's worn, and the pieces she has created for Urban Sparkle represent the liveliest of her collection with their incredible volume and statement.
