Hurrah for all the wonderful women and men who work their socks off to create unique, beautiful and quirky items to brighten our homes and bring a smile to our faces.

 

These wonderful producers pour a great deal of time and care into their designs and constantly show us new ways to elevate the ordinary and everyday into something special. At the Craft House we love to celebrate our makers and we feature one of these hugely talented people in store and online once a month.

Twice Fired is a range of handmade pieces I've created.

 

I was born in London and then lived in Essex. I travelled up to Yorkshire to take a Fine Art degree in Leeds and eventually went on to establish my own glass studio in Farsley, where I live with my husband, 3 children, 4 chickens and 2 cats.

 

The inspiration for my work comes from naturally occurring art forms. Nature has a wealth of beauty, from the tiniest, delicate seed pod to the iridescent gloss of a beetle and the elegant formations of birds. I strive to capture these subtle tones and shapes in my work through the seductive medium of glass. Shades of colour change in different conditions and hidden gems reveal themselves as the light changes.

 

I have been lucky enough to travel to amazing places and have collected random items from an early age - these experiences and objects fuel my experimentation with glass.

 

My recent work is about journeys ...

 

"Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road", Jack Kerouac, On the Road.

 

These pieces explore everyday adventures, dreams of faraway places, choices, chances and what we do with them.
