Pip Stacey & Karen Shackleton Kiln Formed Glass Artists
Walking through a woodland with friends on a weekend away in Wales. A pond was in the dappled shade, reflecting the sunlight in places; blues and greens in others. Just had to make this when i got back into the studio.
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.
