Artist Fay Miler's desire to create beautiful things with her own two hands motivated her to leave a graphic arts career to work with glass.
Intrigued by the reflective sheen of glass, Miller's work tends to be surface-oriented, decorative, and undisciplined. She delights in the random beauty of the glass shards and the joy and ritural they represent.
Her exhibits include the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, Group Exhibit December 2009; Marin Society of Artists National Show 2009; California Clay and Glass Artists Palo Alto Research Center Invitational; Pen and Brush Fine Craft Show; two awards of merit California Fine Art 2010; Orange County Museum of Art Craft Show; Art Festival 2009; Petroff Gallery Window of Opportunity; and Color Is Art and Temple Art Festival. Her work is shown at galleries across the United States, England, and Canada.
Miller has designed awards for Amnesty International, LA Weekly, The Lee Strasberg Institute, The City of West Hollywood, ACLU, Fernando Meirelles-Artist of Conscience, United Fund, The Jewish Federation, AIPAC, LAUSD, and other charitable and corporate organizations. Special commissions include glass dining tables, side tables, desks, oversized urns of grapes, a glass wall for Temple New Tamid in Palos Verdes CA, and an eternal light for Temple Sinai in Rancho Mirage CA.
Miller attended Moore College of Art, Queen's College, and Westchester School of Fine Arts.
