Barbara’s background has always been making, selling her wares at Festivals and Fayres. Now she has moved on to creating in a new medium – glass. Working with Hot Glass has captured her creative interest and led to a desire to improve her work/life balance. Allowing herself time to feel inspired and enjoying the freedom to just make, she is relishing this new experience.
Barbara’s blown glass pieces are made using the ancient process of Incalmo, constructing a vessel by fusing two or more blown glass elements in the hot glass studio. The neck is then pulled into its final resting place, creating non-functional vessels. Barbara enjoys working with a wide range of colours. The vibrant colours she has used in the Orange and Purple pieces are inspired by dramatic sunsets in rural Somerset.
She would like her work to be viewed and collected by people who have an interest in retaining the products she has so carefully made.
“I prefer to hand make for customers who desire an emotional connection with their possessions. I don’t want these bespoke items discarded simply because the colour scheme of a room changes.”
- Barbara’s Glass is available in other colour combinations.
