Note from shop owner Hello

Due to unforeseen circumstances, I have made the decision to put my shop on long-term holiday.

I sincerely hope that I may be back next year, but I will have to make sure I am 100% before doing so.

Thank you.

It all started with the wrong craft course!

I first discovered stained glass when I had booked my Mum and me on a weekend stained glass course thinking it was painting on glass, but it wasn't it was making a leaded light panel. My Mum made a lovely cat and I made a flower.

I enjoyed it so much I decided to carry on with an evening classes for several years held in my village by Sarah Glover. She was a fantastic teacher and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

As a hobbyist I would make affordable items for the children to be able to spend their pocket money on at my son's school Christmas Fayres. Word got around and I made more and more items and they sold. I gained a fabulous commission for Abracadabra Restaurant in London for the late Dave West, where I made a 6' x 3' diamond patterned window with a cauldron design, another triangular diamond window panel and 40 diamond patterned candle holders.

I discovered Glass Fusing years later and started teaching myself, but experimenting was costing me a small fortune in glass! I decided I should be taught properly and attended several courses taught by professionals. I gained quite a few commissions. When personal events allowed me, I gave up my part-time job and decided to turn my hobby into a business.

In June 2014 I started Art of Glass Studio Limited now Art of Glass Oxford. I am based in Eynsham nr Witney, Oxford.

I thoroughly enjoy working with glass and try to always do my best for my customers. I take great care when handling loved ones ashes and hair and make sure what I am making is exactly what you want. You are never pushed into any decision.

I am tending to make fused glass nowadays although still have all the equipment and tools for stained glass.

I have years of experience now. I am not a hobbyist and have had professional teaching. I DO NOT mix different COE's of Glass and just because it hasn't broken yet, sell it. This is a dangerous practice. We have to learn about our kilns and how they work. Heating too fast can crack glass. Cooling or annealing too fast or not long enough can also crack the glass, but sometimes not for weeks/months. By all means buy from cheaper glass makers, but please check glass used, their experience and knowledge. You get what you pay for.

    I have enjoyed working with glass for many many 2002. I began making beautiful stained glass decorations for Xmas fairs and gained commissions so I must have been doing something right! I officially started my own business in 2014.

  • Tara - Best Assistant/Studio Companion. RIP 11/11/2015 my beautiful Tara - miss you so damn much it still hurts

    Customer Service, Assistant

    Tara was an amazing studio buddy and best friend! She was brilliant at making sure I got my exercise by taking me for a walk every lunchtime. I was never alone when she was with me and that was everyday. She was the best and always will be. Miss you

  • Dyson

    Customer Service

    Dyson is my new Studio Assistant, but he is so male! Wants constant attention, whines, always hungry and is just so handsome and cuddly. He is being demoted as he doesn't assist me, but prevents me getting on with my work! Such a handsome boy! Love ❤
