Petra Kaiser is an internationally renowned artist and instructor in the art of kiln-formed glass. Since she added the art of glass fusing to her education in 1997, she has accumulated quite a list of accomplishments. As an author, she has published her innovative ideas in three books with Wardell Publication and numerous articles in various international glass magazines and ebooks. As an artist, Petra has developed a distinctive style – capturing the Florida sun, light and water in sculptures, functional glassware and wearable designs. As an art lover, Petra is always drawn to 3-D sculptures and abstract shapes. When she was first introduced to glass fusing, she found the shape-giving options rather limiting. So it seemed only natural that she and her husband, Wolfgang, "found" Kaiser-Lee-Board. As a people lover, Petra always loved to teach – she even has a degree in it. In her professionally equipped “Fuse It Studio,” she experiments with cutting- edge techniques and designs and often enough comes up with yet another exciting fused and kiln-formed glass project to teach her students. Besides teaching all over the world, she is a regular at the Glass Craft and Bead Expo and was part of the Curious Mondo Glass Symposium 2020.
