Glass Work

Below is a list of artists currently exhibiting at Larks Gallery. Images shown are a sample of the artists work and are not necessarily the current works that are on display in the gallery.

Julia Linstead
"My bowls are blown to my specification and design, by the studio glassblower Jane Charles. I use a palette of vibrant colours within the crystal and sandblast my unique designs into the surface of the glass. My designs are often drawn from nature especially the native flora and fauna of the Scottish Borders and Northumberland. I also find the sea, and all that's in it fascinating and default to drawing fish for pleasure."
Kim Bramley
Kim trained in textiles at St. Martins School of Art. She then worked internationally as a freelance textile designer.In 1992 Kim set up her own glass studio. Her work is inspired by the natural forms, colours and lighting of the Scottish landscape.
Stuart Ackroyd
Stuart has been making his amazing contemporary glass items since 1991 and his skill and ability just shines through. His work is very elegant, stylish and original - perfect as free standing or cabinet kept items.

Helen Stephen
I started working in fused glass in 2008. Since then I have developed a range of products, and framed glass pictures of local landscapes are a speciality, hence the name Glass Scape!

Dorte Pape
‘I was born and brought up in Denmark, but moved to Scotland as a young adult and have remained here since. I live and work in Glasgow, where I share a studio with another glass artist.

I have been working with glass for almost twenty years and do leaded stained glass work, painted work, but mainly warm glass work, fusing and shaping glass in a kiln.
I use various methods in my fused work, combining it with painting and sand – blasting, and this is the work I really enjoy.

I find most of my inspiration from nature, which can for example be seen in my series of hedgerow panels as well as my birds. I continue to get excited by and explore the possibilities of this very versatile and colourful material and create both small and large scale pieces of unique work.’

Steph Else
Having worked & experimented with glass for over 15 years, Glass in Fusion is the development of that knowledge into a unique range of both decorative & functional works of art. Vibrant colour & surface texture are combined with metals, metal oxides & lustre to create bold designs with amazing depth. The random bubble formations & colour shifts in the fusing process allow for every piece created to be completely individual.
