JOY SIMS

Joy has been creating stained glass and etched glass for 25 years, the first ten years of which she concentrated solely on commission work.

Even though she loves the structure and technical aspects of working with glass, Joy likes to work “outside the box” pushing the sometimes limiting aspects of glass, exploring previously untried techniques.

From her studio in Lillian Alabama, Joy forms her own creations and has exhibited in galleries in Pensacola Florida, Orange Beach Alabama and Nashville Indiana.

Joy has juried into several First City Art exhibit competitions in Pensacola, was featured in the Artful Sisters show at Quayside Gallery, was Gallery Director at Quayside Gallery for three years and has juried into exhibits at Artel Gallery, Pensacola taking an Honorable Mention for Urban Jewel glass sculpture and winning Best of Show for her Jin Jang stained glass work.
