Sheri Cox Whetstine ~ Kiln~formed Glass
Sheri grew up in a very gregarious and creative family. As a child, she loved to act, sing, and sketch. She took art, music and theater classes in high school, and majored in Theater and Graphic Design in college. She has dabbled in various media, seeking the perfect creative outlet. At the behest of a friend, she began working with stained glass in 1980. While she found it an enjoyable hobby she was never truly passionate about it and eventually gave it up. Then in 2006, after moving to Port Angeles, she was introduced to warm glass (kiln-formed) and immediately knew she had found her creative passion. She purchased a small kiln and started making gifts for friends and family. Her love for working with warm glass continued to grow and she found the small size of her kiln limited her ability to create the pieces in her mind. The opportunity presented itself and she purchased a larger kiln. She has been exploring the possibilities glass offers which seem limited only by her imagination. She loves to tackle new ideas and try new techniques. She continues to take classes and draw upon the expertise of others willing to share their knowledge. While she does continue to produce pieces which are inspired by her imagination, she also is happy to work with clients on commissions and help bring their ideas to fruition. She is excited to take her art to the next level and see where her creative journey takes her.
Sheri currently lives in Port Angeles with her husband and three bloodhounds.
