As a glass artist for 25 years, Laura Ruud's first works were stained glass using the copper foil method. She then branched into fused glass lighting and sinks for new homes and custom stained-glass commissions. She especially enjoyed working with students on projects such as the large stained glass entry way at Liberty Bell HS and the 4x8’ mosaic at the Winthrop Post Office. Her husband, Casey, a maker of Native American Style flutes, uses her fused glass pieces as ornaments in the flutes. Laura’s latest project is the installation or four seasonal mosaic panels on top of Patterson Mountain in Winthrop.
You can find Laura's mosaic notecards at Methow Valley Goods on the TwispWorks Campus.
