about studio cherry, llc


glass has always mesmerized us. all of us. 

 

Handmade molten glasswork art by Studio Cherry LLC, artist Charity Hagen

from the first  ancient human-fabricated, molten baubles of 3100 BC Egypt...

    

...through the invention of breath-blowing small vessels in 1 AD Babylon...

 

 ...through 1000AD's exquisite domination of Venice and Murano...

 

...through the industrial revolution of the 1800s that glass spurred in research and science...

 

 ... right to the very sheets and shards i fire in my kilns today...

 ...glass mesmerizes us and makes itself useful in equal abundance.

welcome to studio cherry llc, located in the PNW, USA! inspired by all things art, glass, cherry and identical twin! 

    

 

I am Charity H., a multi-media artist working in glass with a university fine arts/studio-based education from Boston, MA and Boise, ID.

 

Glass cast its spell on me as a teenager when I was first introduced to a bead kiln in college, and my interest then morphed into a bit of glassblowing later...and has now landed firmly back at kiln-forging my glasswork. I employ many techniques and am always learning!

the cool surface and deep colors lend themselves to create my soothing sensory objects as well as jewelry, vessels, dishware and display pieces.
i have always found artistic inspiration in the family relationship and  my identical twin sister.
i am influenced by my Norske ancestry, pop culture, the 80's, Warhol, Kahlo, Kruger...so many artists.
i continue to explore the creative power of pain, anger, fear and grief with humor, color and light.
