Kilnformed glass homeware, lighting and sculpture

Biography

I create functional and artistic pieces, usually abstract and asymmetrical, each one uniquely composed. My bowls and platters have recently been joined by lighting pieces and sculptures.

Lynn presents a body of work in fused glass – a medium she is still exploring with great delight. She works almost exclusively with Bullseye Glass, which is imported from America - like Lynn herself! Bullseye glass is hand rolled, and offers an incredible range of colours and finishes – transparent, opaque, iridescent and streaky.

As befits Lynn's slightly off centre take on most things, she determined to create works that are themselves just slightly off-centre. Her round bowls are never completely and neatly round, and often have open areas. Her platters usually have a corner missing. Dishes that might be square will have designs that are rarely symmetrical. That makes each piece totally distinctive, which she hopes will appeal to collectors.
