Licha Ochoa Nicholson

Ancient Pot, Vessels and Earthen Series


Licha’s process consists of fusing and slumping small intricate pieces of hand cut glass to form her unique designs.  Some vessels are roll-ups, which is a combination of fusing panels and blowing glass. An important part of her unique and award-winning “ancient” series works is sandblasting the shine from the glass. Her preferred color pallet is a monochromatic one consisting mainly of french vanilla and a dense white. Licha feels this color combination best depicts the “Ancient” feel of earthenware or porcelain…yet in glass! The last step is to hand polish each piece to a subtle satin finish.

“Alone in my studio late evening, I began to imagine how it would be to unearth remnants of ancient ceramics and glass sheltered by the earths soil for so many years. Who are the hands that created such beauty?   Mesmerized by those  thoughts, my depiction of modern yet “ancient” works in glass was created”.

Licha is a graduate of the prestigious Pilchuck School of Glass in Seattle, Washington and currently resides in Roswell, GA.  She is represented in galleries throughout the country and is included in the permanent collection at the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art.
