Rachel Craig

I'm a kiln glass artist working in Surrey, UK, with a wide range of experience in fused glass pieces of artwork (ranging from wall-hung picture to jewellery), cast glass sculptures, pâte de verre and drop outs vessels.

I particularly love the technical potential of glass and my most recent series is a range of handmade glass pictures from glass sheet, glass frits and powders demonstrating their reactions with metals. The series includes pieces in a modern / post-impressionist style as well as abstract landscapes. My art journey feels like a reaction of knowledge, experiences and chemistry with materials – much like these pictures.

Since starting glass as a hobby in 2021 I have quickly become hooked and through a variety of courses at colleges and online, and voluntary experience in glass institutions which have all undertaken part time around my paid job. Thanks to wonderfully supportive teachers and mentors I have taken part in live exhibitions (Torquay, Bristol and Ireland in the UK, and Tacoma in the USA, via collective exhibitions), online exhibitions, and craft fairs.
