I specialised in glass at the North Wales School of Art and Design, receiving my BA Hons. I was taught by two excellent people who I have much respect for on a professional level. Having brought with me various techniques in glass I still dip in and out of these........from fusing copper and enamels to painting on glass to kiln forming. I am currently combining these and producing a new line of work for 2014.
Motivated by the endless possibilities of kiln forming glass, Pippa is currently focusing on drop moulds and the glass edge. The theme of portable places for contemplation and meditation continues to inspire her.
In October I will exhibit vessels with Lumini Glass in Wimbledon.
Julie Dean is an emerging contemporary glass artist making thought provoking kiln-formed glass blocks. Fused layers of glass embed graphic images evoking emotion and developing narrative. With a background in design Julie started working with glass in 2011. Her work explores the fragility and resiliance of the human condition.
I have been working with glass as an art form for 12 years. Graduated from Curtin University in 2005 BA(Honours). My experience in glass art/craft is that of curator, mentor and instructor
