Elle's Glass Art


My fascination in working with glass has evolved from reading the history of glass and its origins. Its connection to nature from its wonderful translucency of colour and texture to it's versatility in both form and function.  

Glass as we know it is a fascinating element.  It is first thought that glass became present on the planet when a bolt of lightening hit a sandy beach.  The silica in the and melted and when it cooled turned to glass. It was first used extensively as an art form in the Bronze Age. Early glass artisans imitated gems and other precious stones which were highly coveted.

From these early beginnings glass has continually developed ingot the many and varied art forms we see today. Glass allows us to create objects that are impossible to create from any other material.
