Inspired after seeing the Venetian glass masters at work in Italy, Vallins designs, cuts, and crushes the glass, using recycled materials where possible. Some of her work is fired multiple times to achieve the desired effect and then polished and cold worked. This process saves the glass from becoming landfill and gives it a new life thereby contributing to the circular life cycle. She has a passion for recycled glass as her chosen medium as it glistens, creates texture, and contributes to rid our world of waste. She desires for her art to bring curiosity and pleasure and places a little bit of herself in each piece.
