Sally Fawkes

Sally Fawkes has been sculpting predominantly in cast glass since 1999 and is a member of the Royal Society of Sculptors. Sally’s glass sculptures express the complexity of our world and are explorations of the fact that everything is part of a continuous system of interactions where the unknown can become possible. In 2000 Sally set up a studio with Richard Jackson where they make their own solo work and collaborate together. They have built up facilities that enables them to work on varying scales and in different ways, with the scope for a diverse range of projects. Sally holds a First Class Honours degree in 3D Design-Glass from Surrey Institute of Art and Design, UK and has received awards for research and development from both the Arts Council and Crafts Council of England. Since 2005 Sally has taught kiln casting glass at The Royal Danish Academies of Fine Art and Design, in their specialist glass and ceramics department on the island of Bornholm. She has also lectured at universities in the UK on both BA and MA courses.
