About Angela

Angela Byrd has been working with glass for almost 25 years and is driven by a desire to use her art to help others find peace, self-confidence, and authenticity in a world that often places too much importance on other measurements of success.

Born in Hammond, Indiana, she has lived in Arizona, Illinois, Colorado, the Mediterranean country of Cyprus, and Texas, where she currently makes her home.

She is widely recognized for her original work with kintsugi glass which has received recognition in juried exhibits, best-in-show awards, and respected collections.
