Melissa Ayotte is the daughter of glass artist Rick Ayotte. Initially she had no intention of following in her father’s footsteps, she had other ideas. However, during graduate school in 1998, she began working part-time in her father’s glass studio and gradually the fascination of working with glass took hold. Today Melissa is making her own intricate designs, based on nature, with a wonderful feeling for colour and texture. Her weights are script-signed and dated; some earlier weights also contain a blue/white “A” signature cane usually placed on the underside of the design.
