Glass Sculptor

Sandra is 52 and has been lamp working borosilicate glass for 29 years. Developing techniques to work to an unusually large scale and definition; creating 'fantastic' sculptures and jewelery influenced by nature, myth and magic.

Details about work or recent projects

I recently created a large glass chess set as a commission with fantasy creatures and dinosaurs, a glass etched board on twisted tree stands at each corner. Dragons are my signature pieces which I have been making for 29 years. Including one standing 50+ cm on an L.E.D lamp which changes colour. My miniature fairies 'Twinkles' are a favorite and I also design and make sculptural jewellery and torcs.
In more recent years I have been teaching one to one classes to pass on some of my techniques. Elizabeth Welch is one of my students.
In 2012 Sandra won the Peoples Prize in the CGS 'Medallions' Exhibition
