Glass Artist & Maker

Annette's main inspiration is the glass itself, and its many different facets - reflection, transparency, shadow, opalescence, depth, colour. Its mobility when hot - its fragility when cold. Please look at the website, she employs most of the glass processes and has created a few ranges to provide a signature.
