Artist Profile: Anne Smith

Designer/maker Anne Smith does some wonderful work with glass. coasters
Both beautiful and practical, her fused and cast glass reflects a love of the sea and the environment; using influences from the stunning Llyn peninsula where she lives.

When asked about her work, Anne told us “I hope to inspire your senses by combining materials, colours, patterns and textures to make tactile glass that’s individual and truly unique.”

This ideal is especially apparent in the mackerel series of tableware and accessories, where she incorporates digital ceramic transfers, to great effect. The black and white images, fused into pale blue glass, are given depth and an amazing sense of realism.

Anne describes her creative handmade glass as “designed in Wales for people everywhere.”

More examples can be viewed on her website, Facebook page, and Flickr, we very much recommend taking a look.
