Glass

..it began in 1995 when I took evening classes to learn traditional stained glass work, I studied both leadwork and copper foil (Tiffany) methods and after a couple of years tuition I went off to design and create my own ideas as a hobbyist. I turned professional in 2016, and in September 2017 I moved into my own studio space at home in Thame.

I’ve chosen to work with copper foil as it allows greater freedom to design more intricate pieces which can’t be achieved using traditional leadwork. Each piece of glass is cut by hand, surrounded in copper foil then soldered together. I use coloured sheet and recycled glass, sea glass, marbles, light bulbs and mirror; in fact if it’s made of glass I’ll try using it. I also engrave, etch and tumble glass to alter the surface appearance; finer detailing and dimension is added to my ideas using different gauges of wire and glass beads.

My exhibition this year will unfortunately be my last, but what you'll see is my own unique style of glass work using all my own designs with both large pieces and small gift sized items, there will also be additions to my ever growing outdoor range.

Liz Dee of The Silver Workshop will also be joining me this year to get a taste of her work visit www.facebook.com/lizdeesilver or www.instagram.com/thesilverworkshop
