Forget when we went to a fused glass workshop at Spode but we both went to a workshop with a glass artist called Angela Ashton and made flat, square, fused glass bowls that were slumped over a mould. I’m showing you this because his design was much better than mine. I overdid it, too many patterns, he kept it simple and classic. I think I could learn a lesson from this.
(slumped clear glass with fused coloured glass and metal pieces including copper).
I would like to do some more glass art. This hanging piece was made last year. It’s made from fused glass. I would like to find a better place to hang it, so that more light can shine through. I’m also not quite happy with the yellow in it. It slight clashes with the other colours. It’s made with lengths of glass placed horizontally and vertically. It is almost like a plaid pattern.
