I am thrilled to have been included in this months "Still open for business " article in Coast Magazine August issue, and to have been listed as no 1 with a large photo of my fish , what can I say ? I'm feeling just a bit chuffed and more than a bit hopeful.
These really are strange times, as a maker , self isolation gives me the chance to do all those projects I haven't got round to, which will hopefully take my mind off of all the madness out there. Here is an image of one of the new sizes of column I'm making, twice the glass , thicker steel and fused glass inclusion .But I hope you'll agree double the impact, seen here in my garden.
I have just had the exciting news that my fish were on the TV last evening
as part of the NGS virtual garden tours, they were featured in the very fabulous garden of Geoff Stonebanks who opens his garden to raise money for charity.
Take a look,
Based in Bosham,a beautiful coastal village in West Sussex. Karen works from a small workshop at the bottom of the garden, just past the chickens,her little piece of heaven .She is a is a multi media artist who specialises in glass; Stained , slumped, fused and lamp worked, with jewell like colours.
Rich sumptious silk velvet and cool silver, there is nothing suble here . Always a strong design element to her work and a common link.
Karen started out as a dancer , training at the Rudolf Van Laban Centre for movement and dance which is part of London University, this has influenced her work considerably,her paintings are full of movement.
