Michele Riley

Having started glass in parallel to painting and encouraged by some great tutors I have been focusing on glass for some time. I have moved from stained glass to fused glass (great fun!) to kiln cast glass.

My sculptures – purely abstract at one time – now often refer to elements taken from the earth or the sea.
These are recomposed by my vision of them, and in turn are left open to the imagination of the viewer.
At once dynamic and fluid, yet fixed in a moment in time, they take on the shape and colour of memory.
