Hi! I'm Julia Strait, Thank you for visiting my website!
A little background about how glass entered my life...
Starting out in the hot shop turning soft glass as a prerequisite for another major took me by surprise, but quickly fell in love with it. A study abroad trip to the Czech Republic in 2010 changed my mind completely. Once my major was switched to glass, I migratred to kiln forming glass. I Graduated in December 2011 from West Texas A&M with my Bachelor's degree in studio arts with an emphasis in glas and began working at SiNaCa Studios - a non-profit glass school in Fort Worth. There, I taught beginning to intermediate fusing and slumping. This was also the place where meeting the right people, I was introduced to flame worked glass on a torch.
Now the torch is what I call home base :)
Over the last eleven years, I have been traveling to various tradeshows and events to feature my glass pendants. Some of the shows I'm fortunate to do a demo at :)
Working with glass has transformed me for the better. Creating dotstack pendants as well as collaborations with talented artists is my life's passion & I'm grateful to share my creations with you. Thank you for reading.
