Moulds were created of her hands and feet and I want them to look like they are pressed against the glass and about to move. This is the start of a long journey working with this idea

All my work is engraved by hand the images are comprised of thousands of tiny scratches that trap the light . I do bespoke glass and produce pieces for sale. I have recently engraved a glass plate with a pair of elephants.

My most recent recent collection is based on exploring grief, loss and memento mori. The inevitability of death, coupled with the recent global pandemic have illustrated painfully for many including me that life is fleeting and death is certain.

Glass is a material like no other. It is only enlived by light, is imagined as fragile but takes great heat to change it. For me it the ideal media to show invisiable concepts such as emotions, or tell stories or express concerns in new unexpected ways. My work is as diverse, images gather in my subconcious & link together to form unexpected connections reflecting themes that interest me – science, technology, space, botany – to things that trouble me – emotional trauma, mental health, ecology & fractures in society.
I work directly in the flame with borosilicate glass (more commonly known by the ‘Pyrex’ tradename.) I have a diverse, but often science & fantasy led, portfolio of work. I am currently experimenting with plasma sculptures where I create hollow forms which are filled with rare gases that are energised by high voltages to create moving ribbons of light inside. Along with an ever popular range of dip pens, marbles & pendants I am also working on new sculptural figurative work around mental health issues, and expanding my sculptures from wall hangings to garden displays

I am currently working with broken and reconstructed glass fragments and light projection.

Some of my recent work includes:
-The Tonntracha Chandelier, commissioned by a private client for their London home. Made up of over 300 individually lampworked components, laser cut acrylic fittings this piece was designed to show of the optical beauty of glass, whilst giving energetic movement to the room.
-Flop Lights ii & iii were selected and exhibited recently as part of Rising Stars 2021 in the New Ashgate Gallery in Farnham. Made up of over 1300 individually lampworked components, these pieces came together in a flexible framework that aims to challenge peoples’s perception that glass is ‘too fragile’.
-Flop Lights ii & iii have also just been selected for the National Glass Centre Glass Prize 2021.
-Research features heavily in my practice. I have spoken at conferences in UWE, Making Futures and the Glass Art Society Conference. In 2020 I published my first paper in the renouned Making Futures Journal https://makingfutures.pca.ac.uk/journal/laura-quinn

After almost a year of struggling to make life and art normal, I started thinking about what makes me happy.

Besides my family, of course, are fabrics.

I’ve been surrounded by fabrics all my childhood since my father was a tailor.

He passed away very young, so for me, making fabrics out of glass is a way to keep him with me.

I wanted to give the glass the movement, softness, and qualities of the fabric.

The way I achieve that is by making multiple firings for each piece, so the glass falls and folds on itself.

After each firing I position the glass differently to achieve the movement I want.
