Fay Miller’s desire to create beautiful things with her own two hands motivated her to leave a graphic arts career to work with glass. Intrigued by the reflective sheen of glass, Miller’s work tends to be surface oriented, decorative and undisciplined. She delights in the random beauty of the glass shards and the joy and ritual they represent.
Shardz exhibits include Art of the Spirit, Art Festival 2003, Craft Alliance Menorah Show, Boulder Arts and Crafts Cooperative Judaica Show, Art of Our Time, Festival of Jewish Artisans, Orange County Museum of Art Craft Show, Awakenings VIII, Kremen Gallery Celebration and various other shows.
The work is shown at galleries across the United States, England and Canada. Miller has designed awards for Amnesty International, LA Weekly, The Lee Strasberg Institute, The City of West Hollywood, ACLU, The American Jewish Committee, The Shofar, The Klein Chaplaincy, United Jewish Fund, The Jewish Federation and other charitable and corporate organizations.
Special commissions include dining tables, side tables, a glass wall for Temple Ner Tamid in Palos Verdes, CA and an eternal light for Temple Sinai in Rancho Mirage, CA. Miller attended Moore College of Art, Queen’s College and Westchester School of Fine Arts
