As an artisan, Dianne McMillen creates love and memories with her hands. Whether creating a recipe or working on stained glass, she feels the alchemy that happens when she takes the raw materials or ingredients and makes something beautiful or delicious. It’s how she expresses herself while forming a personal connection with the viewer or consumer. A connection people people remember for years, and one that makes both creator and receiver happy. She also enjoys the science behind the ancient craft of stained glass. One of her greatest joys is watching the light bring the glass to life as it magically transforms a piece, making the light itself a component of the finished work.
