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.

Graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University 2012 BA Hons Three Dimensional Design. Have just resigned from The World of Glass as an Assistant Glassblower due to commencing a MA in Glass at MMU.
I am mainly interested in installation and sculptural work. I use glass as a material to express ideas and narratives and I am interested in gaining skills in areas of new technology such as laser and waterjet cutting.

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.
