Interior Architect/Glass Artist

By profession, Mo Costalas is an Interior architect with 27 years experience. She 'discovered' glass several years ago and was instantly fascinated by the material and its endless possibilities of shape, texture and light. Her main inspiration comes from the human form, nature, the sea, forests and unusual rock formations. This forms the background to most of her work although architectural shapes still inspires and motivates her.
As a glass artist the main body of her work has been done using the lost wax technique and kiln form casting
