I will be exhibiting at the Parish Office in Watlington again. This year in addition to the favourite Chilterns designs there will be a lot sea themed pieces on display. I have been experimenting with various tones of blue to create the blue, turquoise colours of the Mediterranean Sea, that I miss so much. I have also started incorporating bright yellow in my landscape pieces recently. Bright yellow is a new colour for me. At first I used it with Rapeseed fields in mind to welcome Spring, but now I am using yellow to reflect my thoughts for Ukraine. As usual you will see a sparkling display filled with colours and textures.
I have always been fascinated by glass, especially transparent glass. And, 5 years ago a glass fusing class changed my life. Since then I have learned how to score and break glass carefully, how to create designs, how to use a kiln, how to slump pieces and many other bits and pieces which are part of glass fusing. There is still so much to learn, and that is so exciting. Hugely influenced by nature’s colours, especially the Chilterns, where I live and the Mediterranean sea, where I come from, I create a variety of items which are all unique: dishes, bowls, tea light holders, framed wall art, coasters, free standing pieces, cocktail stirrers, lanterns and much more.
I prefer to work with transparent glass and imagine my designs to sparkle with light; either on a windowsill reflecting the day light or on a mantel piece twinkling with cosy candlelight.
