Luce Artist Biography

Helene Safire creates jewelry from glass and metal and has won several commissions, including a belt buckle for former first lady Nancy Reagan. She started her career as a metalsmith, but in the 1990s a visit to the flameworking studio at  North Carolina’s Penland School of Crafts inspired her to begin working in glass. She has visited many schools around the country, including Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Maine, learning new techniques and working with other artists.
