My name is Zena and I am based in Bingham, a small town about 10 miles outside 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.

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.
