Sarah is a Gloucestershire based designer maker who specialises in contemporary warm glass. She is continually experimenting with glass and new techniques in order to push the boundaries within the glass field and explore alternative methods to produce an effect within glass.
I work in leaded stained glass predominantly to commission designing and making contemporary and traditional windows for domestic and ecclesiastical situations. I teach private classes in my own studio.I also teach at Sussex Coast College, Hastings, East Sussex where I am studying for a PGCE.
My other work involves the use of kiln formed glass and lead sheet, which I have explored the use of for personal exhibition pieces.
Established for over 25 years, Prisms Glass works to commission for private & corporate clients, as well as Public Arts projects. Commissions include period work, as well as exciting contemporary designs for screens, windows, mirrors, & lighting. 'We use a wide variety of techniques and materials, maintaining a high standard, and encourage client involvement and consultation.
Colour and glass have always fascinated me. Lampworking combines the two and also gives voice to a drive to create that has enriched my life for many years. I am now semi-retired and can devote more time to developing skills as glassworker and silversmith. Me and my work can be seen at Monton handmade market on the first Saturday of each month.
In August 2002 Nichola returned to her native Scotland after a decade of making glass in Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the United States. During this time she has worked with many of the leading glass designers/makers within Europe and the USA most notably Toots Zynsky in Amsterdam and Philip Baldwin & Monica Guggisberg in Switzerland.
