Maria Fagan
Glass Artist

My inspiration comes from the people and things that surround me. The structure and beauty of architecture and nature, everyday objects, situations and the complexity of the relationships we form with those around us. Through photography and drawing I create two-dimensional images, which are then transformed into glass. I am constantly fascinated by the possibilities that glass offers as a material. Using techniques such as fusing, slumping, painting and sandblasting I play with composition, layers and pattern. Planes of colour contrast with intersecting lines and textural forms, creating an interplay of captured light and depth. I enjoy the challenge of responding to a space, and aim to create work that will enhance and enrich its environmental setting. Maria teaches Glass at Merton Adult Education and can be contacted on 07984657934.
