‘Feature: Ann Klem Glass’

Whoever said science and art do not mix has not met Louisville glass artist Ann Klem. “My ‘engineered’ approach to designing glass creations comes from an earlier career in computers and designing accurate, predictable, complex processing systems,” said Klem. Starting with sheet glass, she fuses, slices and sandblasts, resulting in pieces based in geometry and infused with color. It’s a good example of turning STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to STEAM (adding art).
