inspired creations in recycled and fused glass 

Glass artist, Stephanie Besco, describes herself as a "color junkie" and that is gloriously evident in her work.

"Glass is enchanting. There are so many ways to manipulate glass to make art that captures your own unique style."

Stunning!  All of creations at Bayatinge are unique, by nature of the work. My teenage daughter fell in love with these necklaces!

I love to recycle. It’s challenging to make recycled glass projects, since it’s more of a guessing game because you really don’t know the exact make-up of the reclaimed glass bottles. I don’t know how the glass is going to react in the kiln or over the torch – until I really get to know each and every bottle that I’m working with.
