Fused glass pieces, drawings in pastel and charcoal.
Nancy’s work utilises the colours and textures of glass fusing materials and techniques as a fine art medium, an intuitive and painterly response to an image or drawing, further enhanced by the surprises created during the glass firing process. Some favourite inspirational locations for Nancy are South Devon, West Cornwall, Dorset and the South Downs. Fundamental to this process are Nancy’s drawings in pastel and charcoal, which can provide the inspiration and starting point for her glass work, or become pieces of art in their own right. Nancy has a background in Art and Design including a BA (Hons) Design degree from Norwich School of Art, with a career working in Design and then teaching Textiles and Art. She now runs the Artworks studio in Aldsworth near Emsworth, which provides a range of creative classes and workshops
