Joplin artist uses glass art to bring snow to area

JOPLIN, Mo.–Despite the weather, some folks in Joplin were able to see snow today. The Spiva Center for the Arts hosted a class teaching people how to make snowflake suncatchers.

They are made out of fuzed glass, so participants cut the glass, layer it, and then the instructor takes it home and puts it in a kiln.

Jane McCaulley, a local art instructor says it’s her way to bring winter to the area.

“It’s nuts, it’s the snow is all gone, so we’re trying to bring our own snow and make glass snowflakes so couldn’t build a snowman, but they’re fun to make.”
