Alison Vincent - Blown Glass Art

Alison says:

"Glass fascinates me! I first blew glass in 2012. I instantly loved the heat and honey texture of red hot glass and the 1200ºC furnace heat was astounding! I love shaping liquid glass into something unique and sculptural and seeing the colours change as the piece cools from red hot to cold.

I favour substantial, statement, sculptural art pieces. My inspiration comes from my love of nature, especially water and ice - seasides, waves and oceans – as well as polar wilderness locations and the amazing life, beauty and treasures they contain.

Things happen fast in the hot shop - I must think and act quickly. Glass has a mind of its own so I need to work with it to create my designs. I must make a piece from start to finish and can’t stop to think or rest.

Glass making is a balance between keeping the molten glass hot enough to work and stay central on my iron and not running onto the floor whilst not getting too cold – still 500ºC – where it cracks or falls off the iron.
It's not easy, is physically demanding and it’s very hot. It’s incredibly difficult and expensive but it is so rewarding! I’m grateful when others love and buy my work and hope it gives you as much pleasure as it gives me."
