Loy Allen Art Glass

About the Artist:
Loy Allen is a South Dakota native who returned to the Black Hills after studying design at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale (B.A., 1975).

After learning basic lampworking in South Dakota, Ms. Allen studied advanced glass techniques at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina and at The Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass in New York. She has been self-employed as a flameworker since 1979.

Ms. Allen is a member of the South Dakota Artists Network, the Black Hills Artists Network, the Glass Art Society, the American Craft Council, sits on the Board of Directors of the Rapid City Arts Council and chairs the Programming Committee of the Dahl Fine Arts Center of Rapid City, South Dakota.

My inspiration comes from the natural world, the hills and plains of Dakota. Stylistically, I am inspired by the art of the Art Nouveau Age. Like the artists of that time, I am interested in a depiction of plant and animal life in a pantheist spirit. My natural forms are meant to be expressive without being strictly realistic. I hope my work evokes the mystery and power of nature in a feminine, celebratory voice.
