Chelsea Rousso is a glass artist, fashion designer, and writer, as well as a teacher at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. She specializes in kiln-formed fused glass and holds regular classes for aspiring glass artists at her own studio and at the Wiener Museum. Chelsea combines her love of fashion and glass into a unique form of wearable glass, including corsets and bikini tops, which have appeared regularly on the catwalk at WMODA. Chelsea also creates unique sculptures with ribbons of glass woven and fused into beautiful silhouettes which are on display at the museum. Several of Chelsea’s students have shown their work at the Wiener Museum’s A Touch of Glass Show and her Art Institute fashion class worked on a swimwear project inspired by the Carnival & Cabaret exhibition.
At our Sensational Saturdays event on October 27th, Chelsea will be demonstrating techniques for making fused and kiln formed glass to inspire more WMODA visitors to experience the joy of creating glass art.
