Kate Rothra Fleming is an award-winning Glass Artist and Jewelry Designer based in Charleston, SC, and Golfito, Costa Rica. Her career as an artist began while teaching Art to school children in Botswana, Africa, where she served with the US Peace Corps. As a full-time studio artist, Kate currently designs, makes by hand, and exhibits her wearable art to the contemporary craft market. Using a flame to shape glass, or connect metal, she creates torch-formed components individually out of transparent rods of glass and designs them into jewelry. Kate's work has always turned to natural elements and the use of multiples, reflecting the skills and discipline of years of practice. Known for her use of textural contrasts, etching, pressing and sewing pieces together she develops iridescent, sometimes phosphorescent surfaces in glass that mimic natural materials like fur, precious gem stones, feathers, or fine-grain wood. Kate is published in 4 Lark Books: 1000 Glass Beads, 500 Beaded Objects, 1000 Beads, and Showcase: 500 Art Necklaces.
