Roberta Ayles
Glass artist

I make fused glass panels for windows, screens and lighting. I like to use texture as well as colour, so the pieces are continually changing with the viewpoint, the time of day, the seasons and the weather. I am generally inspired by nature, but am happy to be pushed out of my comfort zone too.

Details about work or recent projects

I usually work to commission, making panels for public and private spaces.
Recent public work includes

2013. Cast glass inserts for 7 waymarkers for the Saltram and Plym Valley Heritage Trail, in collaboration with Thrussell and Thrussell, metalsmiths of Bodmin, Cornwall.
