Carli Schultz is an artist working in the medium of art glass with a process called lampworking, or flameworking, a method of manipulating glass by melting it in the flame of a torch. As a child Schultz’s parents took her to the Corning Glass Museum in New York, where she watched wizards create amazing objects with glass as it flowed like slow water. The fascination has stayed with her ever since.

Schultz was born in Washington D.C. in 1972 and currently creates and teaches in glass in and around Portland, Oregon. She has worked in glass since 2004. Education at the Oregon College of Art and Craft and at the Bullseye Glass Resource Center have helped her further her knowledge of glass and jewelry fabrication. Her work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Craft,  in past issues of The Flow, A Distinctive Style and Bead Unique magazines, and in the Beaverton Valley Times and Oregonian newspapers. She won first place in Jewelry at the Oregon Glass Guild’s Glass Gathering of the Guilds Expo in 2008, 2011, 2013 and 2014 at the Portland Convention Center.
