Maureen Charles
Artist

I studied at Ravensbourne, then at Leicester where I first blew glass. A lifetime later, I find I’m again working with glass. Mostly I’m fusing, sometimes to make pictures, sometimes slumping, often something else entirely. I'm exploring and learning, surprised and delighted with glass, and always finding something new.

Details about work or recent projects

Visiting Paul Klee's retrospective at the Tate inspired a series of pictures. I'm trying to replicate "watercolours" with glass powders.
