Anne Somers

I studied ceramics at Glasgow School of Art in the 80s, however due to other commitments I didn't get the opportunity to set up a pottery. Some years later while working at The Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh I took up stained glass making and continued working in glass after moving to Hornby in Lancashire. There I took a further course at Dallam School in stained glass. This was followed by an introduction to fused glass, working again with a kiln. I now have a small studio at my home in Hornby.

I am a member of the Lunesdale Studio Trail which takes place annually in May/June and comprises 20 artists working in a variety of materials opening their studios to the public. I also take part in local craft fairs, sell my work at a number of outlets including the local tourist information centres, I undertake commissions and made the annual awards for The Lancashire Environment Fund for several years. I am available to run taster courses for groups such as GCSE students, libraries and artitsts groups.
