Christopher McElhatton is an artist working in Suffolk, his studio is located between Aldringham and Thorpeness and he has exhibited his work in East Anglia and London. He also accepts commissions.
Worked as a telephone engineer for 34 years in the Derbyshire Peak district which gave me inspiration for my glass work which I took up some 14 years ago. I mainly work now in stained glass both foiled and leaded. My pieces take a long time to make as I tend to work on small scale items using combinations of different processes. Glass has always given me a great deal of pleasure and makes me see and appreciate the beauty of our surroundings.
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.
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.
