Kiln-fired glass – studio-gallery
My work hopefully reflects my passion for glass, the endless ways it changes in light, its myriad colours. Living close to the land on a smallholding in west Wales I am immersed in the landscape – from big skies of shifting shadows to a small beetle hiding under a leaf in the polytunnel. My love of crows, ravens and raptors is often recognised in the larger panels.
Most of the jewellery comes from my exploration of layering and cutting. A pre-fused panel is created by layering the glass and fusing it slowly in the kiln. Individual, unique pieces are cut from this, each capturing a fragment of the whole, a microcosm from a macrocosm. I like to create a sense of depth in each piece, much as you can look into a pond and see each strata of life unfolding. Lustring and engraving often add to this layering.
When customers visit my studio gallery in Carmarthenshire I want them to fall in love with colour and sparkle all over again, like we did in childhood, and to let loose their inner magpie.
Gallery open Easter to the end September Tuesday to Wednesday, 10 - 5.
My work can also be seen at Origin Dyfed in Carmarthen and Crafts Alive in Llandeilo – see website for full list of galleries.
