My glass fusing work is done mainly using Bullseye Glass which is all tested for compatibility. One cannot mix glasses of different co-efficiencies or they will crack. Unlike glass blowing, my work is all done when the glass is cold. Pieces are designed, cut and laid up cold, then fired to create one solid piece of glass. The process may involve texturing during a firing, shaping, molding or casting. All this is done in the kiln. One finished piece of work may go through many firings until the completed shape evolves.
Because of the cost of fusible coloured glass, I have been experimenting with recycled glass. It gives me the chance to save some glass from the landfill and turn it into something beautiful and often...functional as well.
The work shown below is all currently available either directly through my online shop, or through one of the wonderful galleries offering my work for purchase. I invite you to visit The Gallery at Mattick's Farm, the Gift Shop at AGGV or Piers Island Gallery to see my work. New to carry my work is Russell Nursery with glass sculpture for the garden and now also Butchart Gardens! I'm so pleased to have launched a new series of sculptures big and small for the outdoors. :) Also you will find some of my pieces at - The New Photographers Gallery in Sidney. :)
