skinny summer

Kate Osman Glass

I work from my Dorset studio mostly with reclaimed glass, broken greenhouse glass, glass from picture frames and indeed pretty much any odd bits of glass I can recycle! My favourite finds are the fabulous gems of colour that you spot amongst the sand and pebbles at the seaside - the irresistible gleam and sparkle of Sea Glass!

It is more important to me than I can say that we re-use our dwindling resources rather than discarding them - this is why almost all of my work will have had a former life as a window, greenhouse or something completely different.

It makes working with the different glass types challenging and often a little unpredictable but this adds to my total fascination with the process, pushing the limits of what a piece of glass should do and what I can coax it into being - I truly love it!
