Heather Behrendt is a lampwork glass artist from Rochester, NY. She started with stained glass in high school and bought a hothead torch on a whim a couple years later. She has been working with hot glass since 2008 and is a full time lampwork artist.
She is inspired by patterns, symbols and funny cat pictures. She uses her skill in soft glass stringer design to translate these into glass. She is most well known for her stringer drawn cats and music pieces.
She has shown her work in several exhibits and has presented at the ISGB Gathering. Her art has been published in magazines, books and exhibitions. She teaches soft glass at the Rochester Arc and Flame Center in Rochester, NY
