Monarch Chrysallis on the last day enamel painting by Dori Settles
My canvas is glass, my paint, enamel. I use many of the same mark making techniques acrylic and oil painters use.
Spring Vessel interior by Dori Settles
Pâte de Verre is my favorite sculptural technique. The end result is often an illusion of fragility.

About Dori Settles

I look at objects and places around me for interesting textures, colors and design. Over the last couple of years I have been focused on the environment.

In 2020, I raised caterpillars and released the butterflies. This practice led to a new body of work. I also studied the leaves of the Empress Tree and cast small to giant glass leaves. My goal as a maker is to bring nature indoors and start a conversation about preservation.
