About Amy & Oyster Design Studio, LLC.

At Oyster Design Studio, I create original, contemporary stained glass and mixed media art on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I “paint with light” by transforming glass into distinctive, colorful compositions that evoke the joy and the beauty of nature on Cape Cod.

I returned to Massachusetts with my family during the Covid-19 pandemic and was captivated by the art of stained glass.  I have always been drawn to art but I had not practiced since college.  In this time of turmoil, polarization, and uncertainty, I found that working with stained glass and mixed media art was a hopeful, beautiful, inspiring, and therapeutic practice.  Given interest in my work, I established Oyster Design Studio, LLC, where I create one-of-a-kind works of art in stained glass and mixed media. 

I learned the Tiffany copper foil method from stained glass mentor, Neil Maciejewski-Johnson in Cotuit, MA.  In my mixed media practice, I have studied at the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill and the Cotuit Center for the Arts.  Teacher, print-maker, and mixed media artist, Barbara Ford Doyle has significantly influenced my print work. I use monotypes, Selphy emulsion lifts, gelatin plates, and collage. I find that the inspiration behind collage also affects my strained glass process.

Instead of copying a pre-set pattern, I often create my own designs and follow a creative process that I call “free-flow.”  My inspiration comes from each individual piece of glass.  I carefully hand select my glass and create designs that feature the natural beauty of the individual pieces with attention to my vision for the overall composition.  I design organic and asymmetric projects inspired by nature, carefully combining color, texture, pattern, opacity, and negative space to form each unique work.  I integrate geodes, sea glass, fused glass, and other found and natural objects into my compositions to enhance their authenticity.  Patina finish enhances the natural weathered feel and visual impact of her designs.  Cape Cod inspires many of my designs focused on the beach, the ocean, and it's creatures.

I placed my first sculpture in a gallery in December 2021.  Since then, my work has appeared in exhibitions at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the Cotuit Center for the Arts, the Davis Gallery of the Woodruff Art Center, at the Sandwich Arts Alliance, and the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck in Gloucester, MA.  My work has also appeared at the Creative Liberties galleries in Sarasota, Florida and I am excited to expand my presence further this year.  Please check my EXHIBITIONS/EVENTS page above or my intstagram @oysterdesignstudio for posts about upcoming shows. You can select one of my creative designs or we can collaborate to craft your own vision through a commission piece for your home or business.
