Keith predominantly works with Copper in glass to create bespoke bowls and dishes, but more recently, he has been involved in creating individual unique vases an Sculptural forms.
In a relatively short period of time I have been catapulted forward, accelerating my individual creativity and exploitation of the qualities of kiln formed glass. Whilst practicing and experimenting with different techniques I was excited by my intentional and accidental outcomes. By bring glass and metals together I have attempted, not only to define each pieces functionality, but also to create a strong visual attraction to ‘touch and feel’ the nature, outline and identity of each piece.
I am extremely excited with recent developments, particularly with my Sculptural forms and my goal is not only to make work that is certainly possible to be used functionally but also to cross the boundary of function to that of a work of art.
Lisa Sheppy works with fused glass and enamel printmaking a form which she developed whilst studying for her MA in Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking at UWE, Bristol. Ideas for the work are based on garments from historical contexts and their significance as representation of women, society and confinement.
After a career as a Graphic Designer a move to the USA prompted me to pursue a new creative direction. I studied the art and craft of Stained Glass in Connecticut and then on my return to London I began studying and working with both Kiln formed glass and Blown glass. In 2007 I set up my own professional practice. In 2010 I joined the team at London Glassblowing Studio and Gallery as Exhibition Co-ordinator and Curator.
I recycle float glass into bowls, plates, small sculptures and jewellery using enamels, paint, metallic & glass inserts. I enjoy experimenting and using other media together with glass.
