Valerie Adams

As a lifelong northern California creative, I’ve honed my craft over 40 years as a graphic designer, weaving together print materials that provoke thought, convey information, and create a reaction. Since 2001, I’ve embraced kilnformed glass, applying many of the same design principles to craft unique artwork, lighting, tableware, garden delights, and accessories. My style? Think vibrant colors, quirky arrangements, and sleek layouts that reflect my aesthetic vision. I’m endlessly fascinated by the alchemy of turning sharp bits of colored glass into collectible treasures that reflect your good taste. Each piece is handmade by me, one at a time, in my Sonoma County studio. I’ve been fortunate to participate in esteemed artist residencies at the Pilchuck School of Glass and Bullseye Glass Company’s Dealer’s Forum, enriching my skills and teaching prowess. After conducting classes for several years, I now mentor individuals, offering personalized guidance to aspiring artists. For over a decade, I’ve served on the steering committee of my county’s acclaimed open studios tour, Art at the Source, sharing my passion for art with the community.
