About the Artist

Cheryl Sattler has been working in glass since 1999. She owns and operates a studio in North Florida, where she is ably assisted by 3 cats and Mabel the dachshund. Her work is sold across the United States. A Florida native, she is known for her use of native imagery (particularly the ocean) and her love of bright colors and textured surfaces.

 

 

Artist's Statement

Cheryl uses the medium of glass - both its science and its artistry - to express her general sentiment about life: rules are made to be broken. Her favorite studio tool is a hammer. Sattler constantly pushes the boundaries of what is possible - and recycles her failures into new work. She firmly believes that failure is simply evidence that life is an experiment. She continues to live on the edge.
