Tammy O’Connor – Organic-Deco Glass Art

Tammy O'Connor

Sept. 4, 2017 - Nov. 26, 2017
Art Case, A/B Waiting Lounge  

Introduced to glass art 30 years ago, Tammy O’Connor left a career in photography in Atlanta to pursue the challenging medium of glass. The photographic arts had appealed to her since high school in Montgomery, Ala., and her eye for photography sharpened her entry into glass art. Tammy formed “Vitric Visions Stained Glass.” Her work adorns churches in Georgia and Tennessee, as well as commercial and residential buildings in both the U.S. and abroad. O’Connor moved from Atlanta in 1988, along with her husband and three children, and currently resides in Tullahoma, Tenn. She has exhibited in galleries and shows across Georgia and Tennessee. She has been inspired by many artists, but she follows the thought of Robert Schumann, “To send light into the darkness of men’s hearts – such is the duty of the artist.” She does so in a unique way, through her glass.
About Organic-Deco Glass Art
“My work has been described as, ‘quiet, meditative and beautiful,’ the very qualities I wish my work to convey, and it’s in that peaceful, meditative mood that I work best. The design of a kimono, the shape of a leaf, each may be a springboard for a new creation. It is my desire to enrich others with the beauty of glass, leaving a legacy with my own distinctive style, calling upon the rich history of glass through the ages and giving glory to God who created all things good. I create in the mystery of light and glass.”
