Wendy first encountered kilnformed glass on an Art Foundation course in 2000 and was immediately captivated by the process. The next few years were spent studying for a part time Fine Art degree before deciding to concentrate on glass. 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.
She has taken part in Oxfordshire Artweeks open studios for thirteen years and has exhibited widely.
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
