Kate Rothra Fleming is a Glass Artist + Jewelry Designer based in Charleston, SC + Golfito, Costa Rica. Her career as an artist began while teaching Art to school children in Botswana, Africa, where she served with the US Peace Corps. As a full-time studio artist, Kate currently designs, makes by hand, & exhibits her wearable art to the contemporary craft market. Using a flame to shape glass, or connect metal, she creates torch-formed components out of transparent rods of glass & designs them into jewelry.
Kate's work has always turned to natural elements & use of multiples, as with her recent Liana series; hand-built necklaces based on sub-tropical wild foliage & vines.
