Tricia Christian, MA Glass,
I have a deep love of Cornwall and nature which informs my glasswork. Using soft colours I create detailed scenes and abstract designs in wall mounted pictures, bowls, plates and dishes, each with my distinctive style. Extremes fascinate me and I enjoy fusing glass with iron providing a pleasing tension.
Six trophies for the first Arts & Business Awards South West presentations were among recent commissions. The trophies developed a popular sea shore theme in iron and glass. I recently ompleted several private commissions some including a feature of personal value to the client, for example their boat or home. I also make pieces celebrating special occasions.
