Henfield Fused Glass

Fusing glass is fantastic, to wake up in the morning and see how a piece has fired overnight is so exciting – Nina, Henfield Glass

I found fused glass completely fascinating – how glass changes form and in some cases colour when heated to a high temperature. I create textures, patterns and fleeting images in glass using cut, crushed or powdered glass which is fused in a kiln, making unique and beautiful pieces. I use Bullseye glass and fire to temperatures up to 804°C.
I was brought up in Cornwall, the daughter of two potters, where my early life was heavily influenced by a wealth of local craftspeople, and the magical shapes and colours of the sea and the land. Now living in Sussex I take my inspiration from the South Downs and the coastline.
I produce bold graphic patterned glasswork including dichroic jewellery, suncatchers and art panels.
