About Helen Smith

Helen Smith

I am an artist and maker working with kiln formed glass.

The picture is a view inside my studio on a day when it was relatively tidy... although it may not look that tidy to you! I am so lucky to have this space to work in, although it can get a bit chilly in winter even with the kiln on.

I create a variety of glass pieces, some from recycled glass (bottles, window glass, glass shelves, old picture frames) and some using coloured art glass. I have always been a maker and came to working with glass via a rather roundabout route; starting out with patchwork, then creative embroidery and textile art, after which I was lucky to be able to take a degree in applied arts. I thought I would study ceramics but after spending a week in the glass department I kept being drawn back and here I am now with my own lovely glass studio!

In my shop you will find a selection of my fused glass jewellery and recycled glass home decorations. I also create evocative landscapes using glass powder some of which you can perhaps just about see on my studio table. You can see more of these on my website helen-smith.com. If you have seen my work in person or on my website and are interested in a particular piece not listed here, do please get in touch to see whether it is available.
