A H Contemporary Glass
I design and make handmade contemporary glass art from concept to installation for a variety of different markets; these include artworks for galleries, corporate and private commissions, public commissions and interiors for the home and businesses. I run my creative business from my industrial loft studio and gallery (Blue Door Gallery) in Earlsdon, Coventry.
I specialise in kiln-form glass techniques to create one off artworks, which have a handmade character. My award winning ‘Interference’ collection was featured in the Vogue Magazine’s Contemporary Collection for the Home. These artworks are constructed with 1mm glass stringers to create geo-metric patterns and abstract cityscape imagery. The relationship between glass, light and space is a key element in my studio practice; by using both transparent and opaque glass I experiment with the transmitted and reflective light created by each piece.
In 2018 & 2019 I was the Crafts Council’s Talent Ambassador for the West Midlands, which involved finding skilled makers who were in the early stages of their creative career.
