Laurel Marie Hagner
Laurel Marie Hagner is the owner and sole designer for Glassometry Studios. She has her BFA in sculpture and has studied art glass at several institutions within the U.S. as well as in Italy. Her work can be found nationally spanning public and private sectors.
My satisfaction comes from giving sculptural life to beauty, strength, grace, and liberation through artwork of dynamic scale and intricate design. By exploring existence my work serves to create welcoming and compelling interest. In a world where our daily lives are filled with repetition, I hope to give viewers breathing room to feel, think, and embrace the beauty and meaning in life.
