Becca has been fascinated by fused glass for many years but only bought her first kiln in late 2019. She moved to Oxford at the end of 2021 and works from a studio in her garden.
Her current focus is on the strip-cut method of constructing glass which appeals because of her analytical approach to work and love of a straight line. Strip-cut glass lends itself to the creation of precise patterned bowls, vibrant with colour but also, by varying the thickness of each strip of glass, the sensitive use of voids and the use of glasses that react with each other, creates opportunities for the hot glass to flow away from the straight line and form 'jewels' suspended in glass. Becca is enjoying playing with the tension between maintaining a straight line and anticipating how and where glass will flow in a kiln.
Becca also makes jewellery pendants, many using the same techniques.
(Direction: the studio is located in the cul de sac on the first bend of Harcourt Hill, at the bottom of the hill. Limited parking.)
