BREN’S FUSED GLASS: framed glass pictures, bowls, plates, coasters, tiles, jewellery. I was first drawn to working with glass through seeing a TV programme about stained glass. I attended a taster course with an artist in Brighton, was completely hooked, and knew I had to explore further at a regular class. I found a local one and this satisfied my interest until I was introduced to kiln formed glass and I’ve stayed with this aspect of the art for the last 6 years. I have a Skutt Firebox kiln, but still enjoy attending a class at the Mary Ward Centre in Russell Square (London), where they have several larger kilns and other machinery for cold-working. It’s also very rewarding to work alongside other creative people. My preference now is to design and produce glass pictures, some framed and all to be wall hung landscapes, seascapes, narratives, scenes of great variety.
