The Studio

Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains in North Carolina, visit and learn about the process of creating fused glass pieces.       


Karen Hofacker Hovis

 I began my journey with fusing in 2005 in Martin County, Florida. 

Numerous courses and years of study, trial and error have taken place in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina. Retired from the insurance world, I now have more TIME TO FUSE and follow my passion. I am a student at heart and always find myself trying new techniques and methods.
