About the Artist

The Kiln Fused Dichroic Glass artwork of Annette and Gerry Kapfer is created using only the highest quality art glass in a similar way to that of a mosaic artist. Each piece is carefully annealed to eliminate stress in the glass and to ensure strength and durability so your customers can consider them heirloom quality.

About the Artists

As a child I enjoyed many summers just outside of Oslo Norway where I fell in love with nature and the ever changing oceans and its inhabitants. Long summer days on the water was spent playing and digging by the shore, exploring fish and sea critters alike. After college and marrying my husband Gerry, we decided city life was no longer on top of our list. We packed up and left New York for Florida and St. Pete Beach. You can imagine the complete delight and total jaw-dropping moment I experienced when I saw the tropical fish swimming under the docks, seahorses floating through the sea grass, curious turtles, and other unique creatures found in abundance in the waters of my new home in St. Pete Beach, Florida.

Already a long time collector of glass objects, it was a natural transition for us to create our own aquariums in the studio using the ever amazing dichroic glass. The magical properties of this glass with its bright colors and intense reflective qualities are the perfect palette for capturing the spirit of the restless ocean and it’s communities of colorful sea creatures.
