Edelweis Walker has always had a great interest in artwork. From a young age, one of her favorite subjects was art class. Whether it was drawing, painting or sculpting, she was eager to try new mediums. In college, Walker majored in Health Science and graduated with her A.S. Degree in Radiography, but she always kept an art class in her curriculum. Walker continued taking art classes after she graduated and worked mainly in ceramics and wheel thrown pottery. In 1999, she learned stained glass and later began learning fused glass. However, blown art glass had always intrigued her. In 2011, Walker attended a glass blowing demonstration at the Morean Arts Center Glass Studio & Hot Shop. Within a month of seeing the demo, she signed up for a beginners glass blowing class with David Spurgeon. She discovered a new form of art that challenged and excited her. After attending several 6-week classes, she became Spurgeon’s apprentice. She is now one of the Gaffers on the demo team at the Morean Glass Studio & Hot Shop and enjoys continuing to learn as she creates.
