Pate de Verre glass landscape of organic moss

As an Artist and Designer I am focused on creating glass and ceramics to convey my ideas of the importance of individualism and free thinking in art.The concept of my work derives from the natural processes of decay and renewal.

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

In her personal practice Joanne produces contemporary one-off sculptural pieces and three dimensional forms in glass that intimate and animate ideas, through the inherent qualities of the material. Joanne is represented in numerous UK galleries, and her work was sold in Bonham’s ‘Auction of Modern and Contemporary Glass’ in 2009, and has been sold to collectors in North America and Europe.
