These glass stud earrings are made here at the Chrysler Museum's Perry Glass Studio by artist Sarah Vaughn. They are first formed by slumping bits of glass in a kiln. After firing, Sarah uses an engraving wheel to etch designs into the glass by hand. Studs are approximately 1 cm (0.39 inch) diameter. Sterling silver posts, with clear backs.

"Battuto" is an Italian term that translates roughly to "beaten" and is a reference to the all-over pattern that resembles a hammered metal pot. When used to reference glass, battuto indicates that small facets have been engraved all over the surface of the glass.

About Sarah Vaughn Glass

Sarah Vaughn

Sarah Vaughn was born and raised in a small town in Southern Illinois. After moving to Carbondale to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Art at Southern Illinois University she discovered glass. She has been working with the material ever since. Sarah has worked and taught in numerous studios throughout the United States and recently in Scotland. Her work has been shown and collected internationally and featured in various publications including Emerge 2008 and 2012, American Art Collector, and Where Magazine.

She strives to capture a singular moment of time within the glass, often referencing the precarious nature of memory and the lines between the real and the imagined. Since receiving her Masters of Fine Art from the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2014 she has moved to Norfolk Virginia. She now teaches for Chrysler Museum Glass Studio, Old Dominion University, and the Governor's School. She maintains a studio at Glass Wheel Studio where she continues to pursue her work.
