Judith Menges - Studio Glass Artist
Judith's on-going experimentations with new glass techniques and textures, has led her into producing an innovative and exclusive sculptural range of wall hanging and functional kiln-formed 'Glass Art'. She has produced over six different series of 'Glass Art' images including Gemstone themed glass, Planets & Our Solar System; based on NASA’s image of or universe; and the collections evolve and change yearly, so remain fresh and distinctive.

This is the winning chandelier as featured on Monty Don's Real Crafts Show aired earlier this year. It is currently in situ at Hotel Du Vin in Winchester

Currently undertaking a MA in Design Glass at Manchester Metropolitan University.
I am mainly interested in installation and sculptural work. I use glass as a material to express ideas and narratives. I am exploring the possibilities of extending traditional craft skills by utilising digital media thus creating new avenues in my material.

I presently live in the French Pyrenees, and naturally this imposing landscape is becoming an influence in my work, not only through subject, but also scale. Previously, in Dublin, I executed private/public commissions, personal pieces for gallery exhibition and competition where I was privileged to receive numerous awards.

Specialising in fused glass, Lesley uses her drawings as inspiration to capture behaviour in her narrative glasswork.

I am new to glass fusion etc and looking forward to being able to produce cabochons to include in my jewellery work
