Working with kiln-fired glass is both rewarding and challenging. The process is quite physical in that it involves measuring, cutting, grinding and firing and this, coupled with the unpredictability of the final outcome, is what makes it such an appealing and absorbing activity.
For the last thirty five years I have had a dual career of builder and glass blower. I have always hoped I would die at the glory hole but now that seems unlikely. The price of gas has gone through the roof and rightly so. Currently I am on sabbatical and am an elderly but full time builder.
Lauren Sagar and Sharon Campbell have been working together as Sagar and Campbell since 2005.
