We are six contemporary glass artists from Kent and East Sussex. We LOVE working with glass using techniques which create beautiful art for all living spaces.
We were thrilled with our first summer pop up exhibition and shop at The Show Off Gallery in Whitstable, and delighted that Peter Layton of London Glassblowing exhibited some of his stunning glass designs with us.
"I enjoy the process of melting glass into different forms using different techniques of fusing; pate de verre, casting, slumping and kiln-carving. Decorating with screen-prints, inclusions, frits and enamels adds special features and colour. Sometimes I combine fused glass in stained glass panels with copper foiling or lead work.
This year I am also exhibiting with South East Open Studios from the 3rd - 23rd June.
For the past two years I have participated in an International glass competition called The Stevens Competition, supported by the Worshipful Company of Glaziers in London. I have also exhibited my work at Ely Cathedral.”
"I am a material based artist currently focusing on glass. I like to work in a site responsive way. I make installations, murals, objects and wall art. I am inspired by nature, music, metaphysics, magic and miracles.
I have had a lot of fun experimenting with loads of different techniques over the last 10 years. I love playing with light and glass enables me to do this.
Each new project poses a whole new world of learning, challenge and personal achievement. I continue to develop my creative practice with much passion. I like to share this passion for glass with my students who I teach from my home studio and at Kent Adult Education."
"As a Primary School Teacher by profession, being creative and charged up with colourful ideas is part of the job! Initially trained in traditional lead-work for flat panels used in windows and doors, my work now includes three-dimensional structures and lead light lamps. I am always thrilled by the way Art Glass can transform light by illuminating, reflecting and controlling it in such exciting and mysterious ways. I accept Art Glass commissions to raise funds for building a Kindergarten in Tanzania!"
“As a professional engineer, I’ve often admired the craftsmanship and artistry of stained glass windows seen in cathedrals and churches, along with glass items viewed in shops and markets around the world. Having retired from the arena of Radiation & Radiotherapy Physics engineering, I am now trying to emulate that craftsmanship, while fulfilling a long-held desire to work with glass, wood, and stone. The engineering skills acquired many years ago as an apprentice Precision Instrument Maker help me produce pieces of work in these substances which, I hope, match the quality of the wonderful glass panels, and objet d’art, I have so long admired. "
“My journey of creativity has been through many changes since completing my degree in Three Dimensional Design at WSCAD. I studied casting; liquid to solid, positive and negative shapes exploring forms. Creativity, through teaching became my world until I discovered fused glass.
I see the world through colour and pattern, using drawing, collage and photography as the vehicles to help visualise my ideas. I use a range of techniques which bring out the texture and colour of the glass. I am drawn to the nature of the heat and all that changes within the kiln. The use of plaster and how this can add to the surface and depth of the piece intrigues my creative thoughts.”
“After studying at the University of Creative Arts, Maidstone, I discovered my interest for 3D art forms.
My favourite media are watercolour and glass, having discovered the similarities between them.
I love using the wonderful properties of transparent glass to great effect. My inspiration usually comes from Nature having a lifelong passion for Sustainability.
I have exhibited my glass at The National Stained Glass Museum, Ely; Contemporary Glass Society's Glorious Glass Exhibition, Maidstone and The Worshipful Company of Glaziers at Glaziers Hall, London.
I have created a number of new pieces that I'm really excited about for this Whitstable Exhibition.”
