Annette Sharkey (nee Vernon)
Annette's main inspiration is the glass itself, and its many different facets - reflection, transparency, shadow, opalescence, depth, colour. Its mobility when hot - its fragility when cold. Please look at the website www.glasstastik.co.uk, she employs most of the glass processes and has created a few ranges to provide a signature.
I am presently exhibiting in the Manchester Royal Exchange and the Leeds Craft and Design Centre. Other stockists are listed on my exhibitions page on the website. I will be at the Victoria Baths in Manchester from the 13th - 14th of September 2014 22 July - 10 Aug with other members of the Northern regional hub of the CGS.
