Sharon McNamara and Paul Palango
Kiln Art, Chester, Nova Scotia
Paul’s approach was to use crushed stained glass or frit, as it is known, as if it were paint. It was like painting with coloured sand. Sharon immediately saw the potential in the technique and together they began experimenting and exploring the seemingly endless possibilities.
It took a few years to work out the kinks, but Sharon and Paul grew to become masters of perspective, imagination, creativity and design.
Today, Kiln Art is collected around the world by individuals attracted to its vibrant, rich colors and unique designs. Each piece is handcrafted from the first cut to the final finish and is signed by the artist.
