Wendy first encountered kilnformed glass on an Art Foundation course in 2000 and was immediately captivated by the process. A 3D glass course in London over three years gave her the necessary skills and experience to set up a studio at her home in Oxford.
Wendy makes expressive glass pieces which have a painterly quality to them. Inclusions of precious metal leaf and wire enable her to ‘draw’ within the glass and create a palette of subtle colours when the glass is fired in the kiln. Natural forms have always been a strong vehicle for her techniques and her work is also informed by her love of pattern.
Wendy is a member of the Contemporary Glass Society and Just Glass and and regularly shows work in their exhibitions. She has taken part in Oxfordshire Artweeks open studios for thirteen years
Wendy is happy to accept commissions.
