I work from my new studio, Bal Maiden Studio Glass, in West Cornwall. We have over a decade of experience working in glass. We design and produce traditional and modern glass for domestic and architectural spaces. Our bespoke commissioning service offers a wide variety of techniques and finishes including leaded stained glass, fusing, sandblasting, kiln-formed casting and painting. We also offer courses for beginners and workshop facilities for the more experienced.
Having finished the window commissions I have now turned my attention back to the chemical reactions various coloured glass have with each other when they are heated next to each other. I am using this reaction in making new sheets of glass, which are then rolled-up in the hot shop and blown. The work is finished by sandblasting, and hand working with diamond pads to obtain a surface which is extremely tactile and has the feel and look of fine porcelain.
