Artist Profile – Elizabeth Backler

“My first batch of soap was made with grocery-store shortening, sodium hydroxide and a glass baking pan in my kitchen. While my skills, tools and ingredients have evolved over the years, I’m still enthralled with the potent fusion of science and art. This has led me to handcraft other vegan bath and body products, including lotion, lip balm and body wash.
More recently, I have started exploring glass fusing, crafting soap dishes to complement the soap.”
