Shivashtie is a sculptor and artist working in a variety of media including ceramic, glass, metal, wood, brick and various painting mediums. Shivashtie explores reality and perception and works intuitively, letting materials speak for themselves and combining materials in ways which invite the viewer to question what they see.
I started work in glass with a Stained Glass Apprenticeship in 1990 working on new commissions, conservation and restoration. I was introduced to glass fusing in 1995, this has added another dimension to my work and I continue to explore kiln work in various forms.
I am an experienced kiln caster specialising in sculptural and installation pieces. My work is inspired by historical personal significance.

Lesley has been engraving glass professionally in her own business since 1984, both in Africa and in UK. She has had a myriad of clients from all corners of the globe and with many tastes. This is reflected in the art glass that she creates when not working on bespoke commissions. It is varied and offers something for everyone.
