Phillipa Stacey

It is the glass that draws me to it and pulls me in. For a hard, immovable medium you can achieve the impression of movement and texture, both actual and implied, making it irresistibly tactile and interactive. I knew from my first involvement that I was going to continue working with glass. You can trial ideas for weeks or months before finally opening the kiln to see the piece that makes your soul sing. After experimenting for 8 years I have still only brushed the surface of its capabilities but I am finally finding the path that it wants me to take.

I am following two interlinked paths. The first being my love of fabrics – the start of my creative journey- introduced by my mother from a very young age. The second being my love of gardening and my work for the past 17 years, during this time I was bequeathed a small sum from a client which bought my first kiln and grinder. I owe lot to both of these ladies, neither are with me any longer but both inspire me to this day.
