UNIQUE GLASS ART BY MICHELECombining textiles skill with glass fusing techniques, Michele’s glass works have evolved into a diverse collection. Inspired by nature and the built environment, Hereford Summer was stimulated by views over the Herefordshire hills. The 9” discs of glass have been painted with liquid stringer (glass), glass frit was applied for texture. I live locally in Herefordshire and all of my pieces are individual and hand made, such as my glass quilt, made for my daughter. Where possible I use recycled glass.
Alice in Wonderland is a display of pieces of traditional and contemporary lace with various glass artists work including some of my pieces, as the above.
"Volcano" This pot melt was created with scrap glass and using a bubble mold. After 15 hours it looks like the inside of a volcano. The swirling pattern and vibrant orange/red detail gives the piece focus. The inspiration came from a trip to Lanzerote some years ago at Timanfaya. Mixed recycled glass.
