Alonna Bucheimer is happy to be the newest member at Art By Fire. She is originally from Maryland where she started learning to work with glass at 16 years old. Since then she has received a BFA with a concentration in glass from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

Alonna has worked in many different hot shops around the east and west coasts of the US and some in both New Zealand and Sweden. Alonna is a professional glass worker but always considers herself a student.

When able to focus on her own artistic work Alonna prefers to bubble sculpt various parts of human anatomy while incorporating different cold working techniques to combine separate parts or sections. When Alonna blows vessels she enjoys making bottles.
