Susan Kinley

Following my MA at the Royal College of Art, I established a studio in London, moving to Cornwall in the 1990’s to take up a fellowship at Falmouth University. My work has been widely exhibited in the UK and internationally, with awards from Arts Council England, Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation and the David Canter Memorial Fund. Commissions have included the British Embassy in Dublin, the Met Office and Penlee House Art Gallery & Museum, Penzance.

My kilnformed glass wall panels and installations respond to my ongoing exploration of ancient archaeological sites at the edges of Britain, Scotland and Ireland. Waterjet cut piercings in Bullseye glass echo the mapping of land contours and micro lichens on rock surfaces.
