Pam Jacobson – Glass Artist

Growing up in Colorado, art has always been a part of Pam’s life. She took a multitude of classes in school, through college, and into adulthood, seemingly trying every art medium. Thirty years ago, she and her husband bought a house that had the perfect place for stained glass windows. She decided that instead of paying someone to make the windows, she would take a class to learn to make them herself, thus introducing herself to glass. She then moved into fused glass and was so taken that she immediately had to buy a kiln of her own, and she has been fusing glass ever since.

Even though art was Pam’s love, her profession was teaching; for thirty-one years, she taught nearly every grade level and special education and even had a job as a mentor for teachers. It was the perfect job while raising two sons and allowed for time to be creative. For creativity, Pam also included painting, knitting, crocheting, card-making, and general crafting.

Pam retired from teaching in 2014 and moved to Mesquite with her husband, Alan, in 2016. Alan had to promise a workshop and room for her three kilns to convince Pam to relocate. One of the qualities she loved about Mesquite was that it seemed to be a very “artsy” town. Once here, Pam jumped right into an assortment of activities through Sun City and is currently the president of Glass Crafters (Fused Glass Club). She sells her wares at the Mesquite Fine Arts Gallery, at local shows, and through her ETSY site. Her newest venture is making fused glass tutorials on YouTube so others can share her passion.

Being a member of the Virgin Valley Artists’ Association since 2016, Pam currently chairs the committee that organizes the Christmas Boutique and the Spring Bazaar, and she will be teaching fused glass classes in the new VVAA classroom facilities. Participating in VVAA has allowed Pam to connect with other artistic-minded people as she enjoys this phase of her life in Mesquite, Nevada.
