Becky Congdon is a flameworking professional with diverse experience in glass flameworking, teaching, and presenting. Congdon has degrees in mechanical engineering and computer science, and have always loved glass. Her major life change came when she had the great opportunity to work in Corning, NY and was “smitten” by glass.

Congdon left the “engineering-faith” so to speak to use the artistic side of her brain full time in 2006.

She has been a teaching assistant for world class glass artists such as Paul Stankard, Emilio Santini, Debbie Tarsitano, Loren Stump, etc. Congdon has participated in juried shows and exhibits at the Glass Art Society Conference, West End Gallery, Clothesline, Arts in the Gardens, etc. Her work has been published in magazines such as: The GlassLine Magazine, The Flow Magazine, LAMMAGA, The GlassBead Magazine, and the Canandaigua Magazine.
