Amanda Lawrence trained in glass design and kiln work at the University of Wolverhampton and the International Glass Centre, Brierley Hill. She is also a Fellow of the Guild of Glass Engravers. She specialises in fused and slumped vessels, sculptures and wall pieces and in making her own kiln formed glass shapes for engraving. She works from her own studio both for exhibition and to commission. Amanda Lawrence's work is inspired largely by the landscape and wildlife of her local area, and by conservation and environmental issues.
Recent projects include a collaborative exhibition of jewellery and glass sculpture inspired by the beauty of beetles and their interaction with humans.
