Pip Stacey & Karen Shackleton cast and fused glass artists
Grey and yellow bowl
Amazing the way 3mm thick glass changes shape when it is really trying hard to make 6mm!
This bowl was made with pressed glass fired onto a 3mm base glass. The shapes in the final piece did not look like this going into the kiln! Always so much fun to be had fusing glass x

I am a glass artists, self taught with the help of a few good books and a handful of amazing artists, Mikyoung Jung, Silvia Levenson, Rudi Gritsch and Karl Harron, to name a few. Go on, have a peek at their work, they all have different ways of working with glass.
A good word when working with glass is focus. I so often loose myself when forming ideas for a new piece. Making sample after sample until I can get the feeling attached to my idea into the glass in front of me. This repetitiveness calms my mind, slowly reducing the vast noise of an idea into a simple beautiful note.
My long time love of gardening and passion for fabrics are huge influencers of my work. I think you will spot these as you wander through my galleries.
My roots are in Lancashire, I ventured to the middle east for several years and have now happily settled with my husband in Oxfordshire. Here I have a studio in Marcham, an expanding village managing to keep a valuable community spirit.
