Sheena Maxwell: Slumped Glass with embedded metal leaf / copper wire / coloured glass / oxides / enamel

Sheena first came across the fusing of glass as a ceramic student in the final year of her degree in 1999. The excitement of the making and firing process motivated an overwhelming and new interest.

The anticipation and apprehension when opening the kiln awoke a new found passion and focus - never quite knowing if a new experiment would bring a successful fusion, another technical problem or an accidental ‘wow’!

She is intrigued by the technical experimentation of compatible materials and firing temperatures and she adores the marriage of design and aesthetics, focusing on colour and shape combinations, compositional balance and the quality of the finished piece.
