"Friends and Dreams" Glass Bowl
The whimsical figures and symbols decorating Leandra Drumm’s etched glassware illustrate her wonderful world of stars, whirligigs, and sky-rockets. Along with a menagerie of odd shaped animals and hyper-active men, women, and children blessed with far out faces and figures, Leandra creates a unique world best described as “fantasy in motion.”

Born and raised in Akron, Ohio, Leandra is the daughter of two well-known artists, Don and Lisa drum.

Since 1970, the family has owned and operated Don Drumm Studios & Gallery in Akron, which represents over 500 top professional artists and has been honored as one of the country's Top Ten American Craft Galleries. Early summers were spent immersed in the crafts world at North Carolina's famous Penland School of Crafts, where Leandra's parents taught classes. She began selling her artwork at the age of ten, creating crafts at Akron's "Highland Fling" Festival. She continued her art education at the University of Akron through an early start program in high school. After earning a BFA in Graphic Design at Kent State University, Leandra interned with the graphic design firm F. Eugene Smith and Associates.
