Twisted Turtle Studio is founded and operated by Christy Rector who is born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin. Christy has been creating art since she was just 8-years old and it has long been her dream to one day operate her own studio so she decided to take her passion for art, glass and metal and turn it into something special. Christy chose Twisted Turtle for her studio name to tie in and honor her Cherokee Native American heritage.
Christy has taught fused glass classes for the past 8-years and has also published a book on glass fusing. She is self-taught in metal smithing but her love for it really took off when she started working for Blue Hill by Hand several years ago. All of her work is handcrafted, one piece at a time.
Twisted Turtle Studio is a small, local- and woman-owned business but Christy's 16-year old son is following in her footsteps and helping with the business these days as well. Christy hopes her other son will one day join in too!
