I live and work in Sheffield. My work is usually made using recycled float glass, often with wire inclusions. At some stage I expect I'll use colour more, but at the moment I like the simplicity of clear glass and wire - a bit like line drawings. Occasionally I use lead crystal because of its refractive qualities.
Design led glass maker, Michelle Keeling, offers a unique range of contemporary kiln formed products. Producing distinctive sculptural and functional interior accessories, jewellery and wall panels, Michelle's work can be seen in exhibitions and galleries throughout the country. She is also available to work to commission, and has undertaken various corporate, public art and residential commissions.
Catherine Keenan’s fascination with hot glass began while studying at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin, graduating in 2006. At the International Glass Centre, West Midlands she specialised in glass blowing techniques of colour application and refined cold working processes; in particular carved lens patterns. Her work is mainly concerned with processes of colour overlay, cup-casing and cane techniques.
I work mainly in glass and ceramic which i combine in a hot state within my studio practice. Renowned for being difficult to combine, glass and ceramics are usually regarded as being incompatible due to differences in structure; through my research I have managed to combine them in a hot state to create unique sculptural artworks.
Water in Nature has been my biggest inspiration as is it restful and calming and I have spent a lot of time near the Arabian Sea during my holidays, which has played a huge influence in my work.
My aim is to produce work that captures and communicates a sense of stillness, of calm and quiet in a busy and hectic world. I have chosen glass to explore the transparency of water as they both share the same qualities.
