Linda Banks

Linda Banks holds a BA (hons) in Art and English and on the art side she specialised in glass techniques. She works with copper foil, lead and fused glass to create unique, artist-designed pieces in stained glass. She makes light shades, lamp shades, wall shades, mirrors and windows to her own styles, as well as working to commission to create heirloom artworks for birthdays, anniversaries and celebrations. She also makes jewellery and plant terrariums.

I draw inspiration from ephemeral objects of a temporal nature which explores the relationship between natural forms and the overarching mathematical phenomena that relate to them. Working with organic materials whose proportions are governed by the Golden Ratio, I explore the manner in which glass can emphasise the hidden beauty of overlooked artefacts.

I make windows with 'stained' or fused glass, mostly leaded. Ongoing experimentation with fusing and frits, also in setting glass in wood or concrete. My aim is to make colours dance in 3D effect in a room when light is behind them.

Completed post graduate study & awarded an MA in glass from Wolverhampton University in 2010.
Currently working with an abundance of recycled glass

I make collages using coloured glass and photographic transfers. A combination of processes are used to treat the glass before it is assembled using copper foil. This new work can be seen on the craft fair page of my website and will be available for sale at various craft fairs in the north of England.

I am a collector of modern glass. I have a particular interest in larger sculptural pieces by British artists but collect many types and forms of glass - but mainly British.

What is it about Glass ?.

From a grain of sand.

It is said, “That when a passion absorbs one I becomes an addiction”.

The variety of expressions that are created using this volatile medium are endless, from the day man started melting sand, to the exquisite masterpieces that are on permanent exhibition today are simply mind-blowing, saying this, one needs to have the initial passion, like a seed it continues to grow and blossom.

Notwithstanding that, the alchemy of today is just as explicit. The colours available today are one of my favourite tools. I am always captivated by the scintillating qualities of colour that can be utilised, also developing an instantly recognizable style.
Becoming known for the exquisite palette of coloured glass I use in my pieces, the precision of my skills, and the uncompromising aesthetic quality.

Most of the pieces that I engage with, flow from my absolute love of nature and our immediate surroundings, Expressed without compromise.

Although, in the past I have, manipulated, hot formed and staining glass. The challenge of flame-working intricate forms is reward enough.
