Hayley Tsang Sather has a fine arts background with a BFA from the University of Hawaii and a MFA from Yale University. She has had her own graphic design studio for over 20 years in San Francisco. Her art and crafts background enabled her to explore many mediums – from drawing, painting and sculpture in her younger years to photography and ceramics later. More recently, she has been exploring woodworking, jewelry, and metal clay.
In 2006 she, along with her sister, Helen, discovered the magic of glass while searching for interesting beads to incorporate into their jewelry. Hayley has spent a great deal of time exploring silver glass – soda lime glass laden with silver and other metals – and has written, taught, and authored tutorials on the subject.
Early 2014, Hayley rekindled her passion for knitting after discovering the fiber site, Ravelry. She has started enVision, a group – For knitters with discriminating taste for luxury yarns and exceptional patterns, primarily in challenging lace designs – and delved into the exciting world of lace shawl designs.
About the same time, Hayley began taking metalsmithing classes at her local community college and continues to explore its many interesting techniques. She hopes to one day combine her glass, fiber, wire works, woodworking, and metalsmithing skills into fun and exciting objet d’art!
Hayley draws her inspiration from her fine arts training of design, color, texture, composition, abstraction, juxtaposition, and interpretation.
Hayley teaches flameworking both in the United States and worldwide.
