This year I'm sharing an exhibition venue with Vicki Cumming at her home in 10 Home Close.
Because of the enforced nature of exhibition spaces this Artweeks, I'm exhibiting from our camper van on Vicki's drive which will certainly be different.
We'll have more small pieces this year for obvious reasons but as usual I'm happy to take commissions for larger or other pieces.
The pictures shown on the gallery are mostly from previous years as we make and frame pieces right up to the wire so the final collection wont be ready until a few days before the event.
Additionally, we'll have information on our courses in fused glass which will be commencing late summer; dates already on the Glass Jewels website - www.glassjewels.co.uk
We look forward to meeting you soon!
I've been working in fused glass for about fifteen years.
I love its clarity, it transparency and the ability to create depth and a 3D look in my pieces of fused glass.
I don't go for the 'fuzzy felt' effect some glass artists like with pieces of coloured glass cut in to the shape of buildings or rooftops perhaps. Instead I prefer working with a clear glass background and adding colour, shape and form with metals, oxides and crushed coloured glasses.
Many of my pieces have a sea theme and more still feature water in some way; glass is a great at being able to give the watery look I'm seeking.
