Chrissie Smith

I work with colourful American Bullseye glass with its exceptional clarity to create fused panels that can hang both in the home or be placed outside in the garden. Designs develop from sketches and photos as I travel; celebrating successful landscapes, wildlife areas and in particular insects and birds. I overlap layers of coloured glass to produce one flat sheet with shades and tones. Details are painted or drawn using a suspension of fine glass and highlights are added using attractive dichroic pieces.
I call the process ‘Painting with Glass’
