Andrea Kummli – the fascination of glass fusing

Andrea Kummli explored several creative paths before finally finding her artistic calling in three-dimensional glass art. She took up this fascinating art in 2013 and has been practicing it with unbridled enthusiasm and commitment ever since. The pleasure that Andrea Kummli takes in her work and her passion for this ancient, only recently rediscovered glass art is reflected in every one of her artworks. Her creativity knows no bounds when it comes to using the play of light, colors and shapes, or a myriad of materials and techniques.

Andrea Kummli

As a result of attending many workshops with illustrious glass artists in Switzerland and abroad and, at the same time, experimenting daily in her own atelier, Andrea Kummli has gathered an impressive array of professional skills. This enables her to build on her experience: she sees every new artwork as a challenge and a small step further in her career.

«My glass art is always a rendezvous with myself, and so it’s very personal. »
