Zena West's Profile
My name is Zena and I am based in West Bridgford, a suburb of Nottingham. I live with my lovely husband John. I would say WestArtAndGlass is a one man operation, but that would be severely undermining all the support John gives me, whether in helping me to get my stock to local craft fairs, putting up with the occasional glass splinter without too much grumbling, or helping with creative suggestions. He's my muse!
My workshop, sales room, store room, everything is contained within our little flat with the kiln sitting at the bottom of our bed. Very handy in the winter months! I never throw something that's gone wrong away, it can be melted again into something new. I'm always looking into ways of incorporating more recycled materials. I also try to offset the carbon produced by the electricity my kiln uses, by purchasing trees through www.carbonfootprint.com or oak saplings...
