Payson’s first co-op gallery welcomed its newest partner Sunday, Nov. 23. Sandy Pendleton’s art is now on display and for sale at the Artists of the Rim Gallery, 408 W. Main St.
Pendleton’s art is fused or kiln glass and comes in very diverse colors and designs.
“I’ve been producing fused glass for five years and am now teaching the art form,” Pendleton said.
She went on to say, “In my earlier years I traveled Europe and was very impressed with the beautiful stained glass I saw, so when I came home, I began working in it.”
Later, she saw what could be done with fused glass and decided to move into that medium, as it allows one to be more creative.
Pendleton’s shop is at home, where she works 16 to 20 hours a week using four kilns.
“My husband Mike is very supportive, even giving me part of his garage for my studio,” Pendleton said.
Pendleton also displays her art at a co-op in Pinetop.
