Hi! My name is Kristi Hall and I own Big Grass Farm Designs. I make fused glass jewelry, art and decor. First things first, I bet you are wondering about my business name. When my husband and I bought our farm, our son was about two years old. We drove out into this field that had grass up over the hood of the truck because they hadn't mowed it for hay. All my son could say was "Look at the Big Grass, Look at the Big Grass!". Needless to say, it kind of stuck and I carried it over to my business.
Now, back to my art. I started making jewelry years ago. I teach computer science at the local community college and had the opportunity several years ago to take a class in fused glass. I fell in love and I was hooked! Opening that kiln after a firing is just like Christmas morning for me. Working with fused glass gives me the artistic release I need from all of the technology that I deal with on a daily basis. BTW, I now teach that fused glass class as well.
I have developed a term to describe my style..."rustic elegance". My idea of dressing up is a pair of dark blue blue jeans and a pair of dress cowboy boots (my alter ego is a cowgirl, lol). However, I like to wear nice jewelry to dress it up a bit. Most of my pieces will look equally good with a nice blouse and blue jeans or with a dress. If you've got that shabby chic thing going on, then this is the spot for you!
If you would like to know more about what I do, please join me on my blog at bgfdesigns.blogspot.com.
I hope you enjoy my jewelry and art as much as I enjoy creating it.
