"My hobby quickly became my passion. I hope that you get as much enjoyment from the pieces as I did in designing and making them."
Yeo River Glass
Lorraine lives on the Somerset Levels near the River Yeo. Her glass journey began several years ago, discovering the craft purely by accident whilst working with other mediums. Following her initial training at Warm Glass UK, she has completed further courses and has recently returned to college to study Art and Design.
Her work is inspired by the beauty of the area in which she lives, both coast and countryside. She also finds inspiration within the glass itself, the colours, textures and variations are endless, even the chemical reactions can be quite beautiful.
Her love of colour shows in her original bold, bright designs.
Her work can be found in craft galleries and at local art fairs. Commissions welcome.

Kiln formed glass or fused glass as it is also known, involves a variety of techniques using many glass forms, from sheet through to powder. Sometimes inclusions are added such as metal foil, wire, specialist papers, and some pieces are painted by hand. The designs are then fired in an electric kiln, with further work and shaping completed in subsequent firings.
