2016 AM AM artistic Portrait for About Me

Amy Mueggenberg received her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Iowa State University in Ames, IA.  She is originally from the Des Moines suburb of Grimes, Iowa. She moved to Cedar Rapids in 1997 and currently resides in Marion, Iowa. Being a stay-at-home mom to two great kids gives her time while they are at school to pursue her passions of creating fused glass pieces and photography.   While she always had a love of photography, she expanded her skill set when she learned how to knit, and she rarely goes anywhere without her knitting needles and some yarn. Amy discovered the art of glass fusing in the summer of 2011 while her kids were at a summer recreation class, and she has been cutting and fusing glass ever since.

For her glass pieces, she gets inspiration from the world around her. Amy takes the visualization of a sunset on a beach or a tree blooming in the spring and transforms it into a beautiful pendant. Her pendant color combinations reflect constant color staples as well as upcoming color trends in the fashion world as she keeps her eye on colors coming up the next season.

She started out exhibiting and selling her products at local art and craft shows. In 2011, she established AM artistic and her array of artwork can be found at several loations.  Check out the list of stores and events for details.  Amy still participates in several art and craft shows.
