Teresa, Chlapowski

My main medium is glass; fused or sand cast. I love to experiment, pushing the glass to its limits in an attempt to express my ideas. Every piece is an exciting challenge, a partnership between me and the glass. I exhibit widely and am happy to do commissions.

As a former knitwear designer, fusing allows me to create forms which have a textile, flowing quality. Sand casting gives me a deeper, more mysterious, alchemic medium to pour into layers, creating more primitive sculptural forms. My vessels express my previous textile background and love of patterns and colours, whilst in the more sculptural pieces I focus on emotions or moments trapped in time which the viewer can make their own.
