Chrissie Smith
Fused glass artist

Originally a biochemist Chrissie re-discovered the challenge of experimentation with fused glass, silver stain and enamels. During her recent studies at Glyndwr University, Chrissie used hand-cut coloured glass or sandblasted float glass to translate the similarities between water and glass. Her sculptural forms are displayed in gardens, backlit with solar LEDs.

Details about work or recent projects

In 2011 at Art in the Garden, Hillier Gardens, Romsey, Winchester, eight of Chrissie's 'River Tutini' were on display within the stream and Bog gardens. Their coloured glass echoed the structure of the surrounding ornamental leaves. These 'Tutini' sculptural forms also translate well into back lit wall lighting for the home.
May 2012 six sandblasted, float glass sculptures were sited in the BOG GARDENS at HILLIER GARDENS. The slight turquoise forms nestle in amongst azalias and hostas
