Jill Bagnall

I create kiln-formed, predominantly fused glass and run workshops in the Shropshire Hills. A lifelong, serial, maker/crafter with zero formal art education, glass sates my thirst for challenge alongside creativity. I’m self -taught with huge help & inspiration of some amazing masterclass tutors. I usually work with bold colours & strong abstract patterns, aiming for visual impact and 'tapestry style' is an absorbing favourite. My designs usually reflect a love of science/geometry/order; usually abstract, often complex, ordered & balanced though not necessarily symmetrical. I have been running fusing workshops in Shropshire for 7 years and have taught hundreds from near & far and I’m excited & absorbed by opening a new studio soon, where I will have space for more experimentation and for my students.
