Louise Hawkins

My work explores flow of form, the essence of the organic and the vegetal. Through observation, study and precision carving by hand my focus is to achieve, in glass, the effortless and random characteristic of nature, drawing attention to our connection with it and with our environment

I use drawing, hand cut stencil techniques and sand carving to create one off pieces of glass art. Blown by Colin Hawkins, my vessels and forms are made from Crystal with either colour overlays or blown colour. Much of my current work is made to commission or for exhibition
