Smith Glass Designs
creative career started as a graphic designer. After graduating with a BA Hons
in Graphics and working for fifteen years in a variety of roles up to design
manager she decided to break away from graphics and explore the creative design
possibilities of glass as a medium. She gained a diploma in Traditional Stained
Glass and studied glass fusing.
glass design falls into two categories - fused glass for interiors and
architectural stained glass.
of her work is individually designed and hand crafted using a variety of
kiln-forming processes for fused pieces and traditional leading techniques for
stained glass. The individuality of each design, the very nature of glass itself
and the kiln processes used, ensure that each piece is unique.
Her fused glass involves cutting, layering, fusing and slumping glass to produce a range of interior accessories. A key element of her work is that it is functional, not just decorative, and so it is ideal for the home and workplace. Her fused glass includes a range of tableware and accessories, serving plates, gifts, sculptures and glass art.
Her stained glass panels are made using traditional leaded light techniques and materials as well as fused glass to add detail. Like her fused interior glass, the stained glass is functional as well as decorative. Her work harnesses the translucent colour in glass with the flowing qualities of the fused pieces to create very unique designs that enhance the environment whether at home or in the workplace. Her stained glass includes panels, screens and architectural stained glass.
Commissions for fused or stained glass are always designed with close liaison with the customer ensuring a creative, individual solution that is tailored to your specific requirements.
