The whole is mounted in a light grey showdown box frame for easy care. The frame can stand upright (or lean) and also be wall mounted (see photo of back)

Dimensions of frame;
Height: 27cm
Width: 27cm

Hi! I’m Kate and I’m a part-time glass artist from Desford, Leicestershire. I have been glass fusing now for over 4 years and have a small studio space at home.
For me, glass is addictive – the colour and the way that light sends patterns through it. There is nothing quite like the feeling of opening the kiln lid – and it worked! It doesn’t always but you can always ‘make lemonade from lemons’ and recycle the glass – even the tiniest piece can be used.
The glass I use comes, mainly, as sheet glass which is then cut (by hand and sometimes saw) but I also use glass powder, glass frit (coarse powder – think caster sugar up to seasalt in size) and murrini (specially shaped very small glass pieces created by very talented people).

I tend to make either geometric pieces (my ‘other’ job is teaching maths) or nature (my other love). No piece will ever be identical to another even if I use the same colours – but you will get the piece in the photo. This is why there is only ever ‘one available’.
I hope my glass brings colour and a smile into your home- and that you will be able to enjoy it for years to come. If you are gifting, then I hope it makes them smile too.
