MEET THE INSTRUCTOR
Fused Glass Artist & Instructor Sandy Krebeck has been crafting for as long as she can remember. She has sewn and made quilts for over 25 years. “I also love and admire all things handmade and dabble in quite a few crafts,” she says. Sandy started in glass 21 years ago, learning stained glass first and then taking a fusing class. Immediately she was hooked, soon purchasing a kiln and making her own creations at home. Sandy was first introduced to Third Degree in 2011 at a Third Friday Open House, where she met cofounder Doug Auer and inquired about opportunities. It wasn’t long before Sandy found herself working and making her own creations in Third Degree’s fused glass studio.Sandy’s creations are purposeful for around the house, and make great gifts. Sandy focuses on small items that she would like in her home, as well as personalized gifts perfect for a wedding or baby shower. She loves giving away her handmade creations to many friends and family. Sandy describes her style as clean and pretty with a little whimsy.
