Rebecca Mansbridge

In 2004 Rebecca joined a local workshop group which taught the skills for copper foil work and fusing glass - and fell in love with glass. She has been exploring the colours and delicate beauty of this material ever since. She is an established glass artist inspired by the joy and wonder of the natural world to create delicate and intricate fused glass artworks that capture the tranquillity and magic of nature. Her creative process involves studying and then interpreting her chosen subject matter before working through the technical process required to achieve the visual depth and, often very delicate, detail. This can involve up to four layers of glass and the addition of countless intricate details before the firing process can begin. Rebecca will fire a piece several times, gradually building up the layers so that there is visual depth and interest in all her pieces. Rebecca absolutely loves colour and her glass reflects this. All of her pieces delight in colour. Originally all her work was abstract, but in 2010 she began exploring how to represent nature in glass and found that she loves to interpret nature in glass. Recently she has started exploring using small pieces of glass to create intricate patterns and designs. The recent purchase of a second, much larger kiln has given Rebecca the opportunity to explore new designs and techniques and to fulfil the growing demands of an expanding gallery portfolio
