Fused glass and textile artist
Many years ago I trained at art college in London as a graphic designer, drifting into other convenient jobs as my family grew up, but am now returning to my artistic roots alongside my day job.
Starting with a 2 hour course on using a microwave kiln a spark was lit (metaphorically speaking … I didn’t really set fire to anything!). On a bit of a whim I bought a larger kiln, lots of glass and it has grown to something of an obsession. I'm even learning how to do lampworking too in a tin shed at the bottom of the garden.
When covid allows I attend local craft fairs in Hertfordshire and surrounding counties and sell through this new sparkly shop online, my facebook page and a couple of local shops, Flowers by Catherine in Wheathampstead and Ayletts Nursery.
I am happy to work to commission and welcome a challenge, within reason!
I particularly enjoy creating birds and creatures as well as landscapes and floral scenes but have created many random items!
Where to buy?
Currently my work is available at:
Flowers by Catherine,
8 High St, Wheathampstead, AL4 8AA
and shortly at
North Orbital Rd, St Albans AL2 1DH
This year I have nothing confirmed but I am hoping to be at Histon Handmade in November.
George the goose
George is where my art at home journey began. I have been drawing him for about 20 years now and he has also been made in glass and felt. He even has his own facebook page and following.
