Cynthia McCrae

Crew Instructor

Your instructor: Cindy has spent her career teaching others since attending Bowling Green State University and focusing on education. Whether it’s pre-K through middle school or her art students, she is always sharing her knowledge and experience with others. Cindy loves working with fused glass and finds it therapeutic to experiment with different facets of the medium. Creating functional pieces that can be used, instead of being hung up or sitting on a shelf, bring her great happiness.

She has been a fused glass instructor for the past seven years at Glass Axis in Columbus. Cindy has displayed her work at Glass Axis and has an artisan plate in the State House Museum Shop. 

Cindy received an artist grant from the Greater Columbus Arts Council in 2023. This grant was used to purchase tools necessary to equip a home studio to produce her own work and have the tools necessary to teach fused glass classes.

Cindy’s teaching philosophy: I like to provide a brief description and instructions on tools to begin. While we are working, students are encouraged to ask questions and request assistance with anything they need throughout the class. I enjoy seeing students motivated to explore using their own ideas and unique creativity
