Sue Berry has worked for over 30 years with fabrics as a textile conservator, which is a very technical, detailed, and meticulous discipline.
Faced with the prospect of a mid-life crisis the “glass bug” bit her. In her words: “I love the process of blowing glass. It is the direct opposite of the sedate, quiet world of textile conservation. It is hot, physical, noisy, and dirty. I love the fluidity and movement of working glass. I love the interplay of color, the spontaneity, and unpredictability. For me, the dance of glass is everything.”
She operates The Superior Studio in midtown Cleveland where classes and rental time are offered. The new and improved studio has just moved and can be found behind the Shovelworks building on east 40th street.
