Di Harding

I finished my degree in contemporary crafts at Manchester University in 2002 and since then have been working in glass, wax and paint. I have a glass studio at home and also I am a artist at Vale Artists Studios in Congleton. Cheshire. My work is about revealing hidden imagery, capturing dynamic colour combinations which evoke and transform initial observations of land and nature into an expressionistic and ethereal style.

My new work is layering images into block of glass either by using ceramic decals or coloured layers abstracted, plus quirky lost wax castings of found or constructed objects.
The inspiration is from nature and the paintings that I am working on in Wax and Oil
