About the Author

Vickie Hallmark
vhallmark Austin, TX, USA
Bridging many media, Vickie Hallmark pursues her artistic muses in whichever direction calls: metal, glass or fiber. This cross pollination of different ideas, coupled with her experimental nature as a research scientist, leads Hallmark to combine materials in novel ways. Metal over glass is a particular fascination, be it copper electroforming over lampworked beads, or silver metal clay formed around hand-painted enamel glass tiles. Over the last decade, Hallmark's work has been exhibited internationally in juried fine craft shows such as Craft Forms, Crafts National, and Materials: Hard & Soft. Chosen as a Glasscraft Emerging Artist in 2007, Hallmark has published images of her beads in The Flow, The Glass Bead (publication of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers), and Bead Release 3, an annual compendium of that year's best beads. Her work has also appeared in Metal Clay Artist Magazine, and has been included in both museum and private collections.
