Patricia “Trish”  Buggy joins GlassRoots as a Teaching Artist after many years of taking classes in the glass arts. After taking the Bead & Business class at GlassRoots with Ellen Brown & Richard Paz & taking private lessons in lampworking with Rain Trippodi at GlassRoots, she is excited to join the team of artists who have taught her.

Trish holds a BFA in Interior Design & has always incorporated glass as a design element, from windows to lighting, sculpture, and tile & as an art form for display & household use. Starting with stained glass & progressing to fusing, flameworking, resin & glass art, & mixed media mosaic art, Trish loves sharing her passion by teaching students & adults. A main focus of her work is using recycled objects, glass, & jewelry to create new art. In addition to working in her home studio, she loves to travel & take art classes to learn & develop new skills.
