Glass Landscapes & Jewellery


Glass landscapes & jewellery from Carmarthenshire

the studio

I live and work from a small studio near Newcastle Emlyn surrounded by fields, woods and big skies, close to Cardigan Bay, the Teifi and Towy rivers, the hills of the Preselis – Carningli, Foel Drygarn, Carn Menyn. Endless skyline inspiration. That line which defines the space, defines the vastness of the landscape. The edge of the broad vista. The balance of boundaries, the line between worlds.

Using the heat of the kiln I manipulate glass in a variety of forms – sheet, powder, frit, enamel – and take it through a multitude of firing schedules to create windows onto worlds.  They are glass landscapes – panels and jewellery – inspired directly by the local area.

Layers of colour, paint, pattern, texture and print make up each piece.  The spaces within them are as important as the areas of colour – they add depth and a perspective, the ability to glimpse through as well as onto each window.

Lose yourself in the landscape, feel the wind on your face, inhale the sea’s breath, hear the raven call.

Blue Hill pendant

Each handmade piece of glass is a unique creation – you’ll find pendants and earrings, dishes and bowls, freestanding curved panels, sun-catchers and rainbow makers, birds and stars….in a converted light-filled barn.

The gallery now also features a selection of gorgeous work by Aled Jenkins made from reclaimed Welsh slate – clocks, vases, pendants. All incredibly tactile and with a wonderful history.
