I am so sad to say this wonderful heartfelt business closed its doors for the final time in September of 2019. But don't worry you can still book classes and workshops, or even pop-ups and trunk shows. Just get in touch and I'll make it happen.
I am so very grateful to all of our supporters over the many years as Paul & I lovingly crafted our work and our business in the sweet beautiful city of La Mesa. Paul does not have an online presence but please follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook to find out what I am up to now.
With much love and much gratitude,
Fusionglass Co. was a working studio/gallery located in the beautiful city of La Mesa, CA. Founded in 2003, and closed in September 2019. The studio was owned and operated by artist Debbie Solan and a partner Paul Fernandes until his early retirement after which she took sole ownership.
Committed to promoting the arts through exhibitions, events, teaching programs and an open studio policy that encouraged the community to drop in and create. Classes were offered in all mediums, from drawing and painting to jewelry making, mosaics, silk painting wearable art pieces and of course glass fusing!
Many of the classes are now offered on a mobile basis. Please email
firstname.lastname@example.org for info.
