Sue originally trained as a graphic designer, but now creates kiln-formed art glass using liquid, sheet, frit and powdered glass in a variety of transparent and opaque colours. She melts the glass in a kiln to make jewellery, vessels and large wall art.
Sue’s studio is set within a working farm, and she is inspired by the texture of the natural and working landscape, geology and our industrial heritage:
‘I walk the dog around the same fields each day and observe the changing seasons, the working practices of the farm and the impact of man on the landscape. This has inspired pieces based on hedgerows, ploughed fields and abandoned buildings’
Sue enjoys photography and is continually developing new ideas, deriving much inspiration from contemporary crafts, ceramics and painters.
She exhibits regionally and has work in private collections.
Coastal Gallery is delighted to feature Sue’s beautiful glass pieces.
