After a busy life bringing up 4 children, moving with my family from native Holland to Pembrokeshire, Wales and teaching Raja Yoga in these beautiful surroundings, I decided that in Glass Art lay my true vocation. After training at Swansea's Architectural Glass course I set up my own workshop. I love a wide variation of disciplines in Glass.
Lydia specialises in Architectural Stained Glass and 3D-Design in Glass for both exterior and interior contexts. Working with different qualities of light to create contemporary designs that offer glimpses of the natural world through form, colour and texture.
Commissions completed range from private residence to public buildings and places of worship.
Designs and makes glass pieces intended to enhance and bring a soulfulness to the environments that we spend our lives in - both in the private and public arena. Her work includes commissioned as well as non-commissioned pieces. Primarily an architectural glass artist. Also works on a smaller scale producing table top stand alone panels, large plates and bowls.
working life in commercial film making, retired and continued to be fascinated by light and organic shapes.
Having retired from a varied career in planning and conservation I entered the exciting world of glass art and set up my studio in 2009. I work from Penarth, on the coast of the Vale of Glamorgan where I have lived for over 30 years. My main inspirations come from the natural world of seacapes and gardens. I particularly love the three-dimentional qualities of kiln-formed glass and my work includes scenes and plaques as well as tableware and jewellery.
I use predominantly hot glass to create factual and imagined objects that often take the form of individual pieces or collections of curiosities. Inspiration comes from many sources. Personal experiences, peculiar facts, elaborate hoaxes and more recently, voyages of discovery, endeavour and exploration all help to inform, whilst a passion for both traditional craft skills and innovative new technologies play an important part in the execution of the work.
