“After working in academic science for more than 20 years, I decided to try something new and exciting. I set up a studio for fused glass work and now I am having a lot of fun designing and making variety of fused glass objects and jewellery.
Glass is an amazing material, which interacts with light in many interesting ways and offers infinite possibilities to explore combinations of colors, transparency, shape and texture. My science background also comes useful when considering chemical reactions that occur between different kinds of glass and metals when they melt and blend with each other in the kiln. My fused glass creations are inspired by nature and often by what I see when I walk to my studio.
I am happy to teach anyone in my studio, so get in touch if you are interested in fused glass and would like to make something beautiful.”
We have a range of Irina’s work in the Gallery, from hanging ‘fish’ to tealight holders, decorative (and practical) plates and bowls.
Irina is also more than happy to discuss commissions so please contact her directly or through the Gallery.
