“My work is all about bringing a soulfulness to the everyday spaces we spend our lives in, whether in the private or public arena.” Arabella’s larger scale pieces take the form of windows, doors, tall panels, screens, sculptures to name some examples. From time to time she also works on a smaller scale producing table top stand alone panels, large plates and bowls and even pieces that can be worn as fabulous jewellery. Her work includes commissioned as well as non-commissioned pieces.
She is currently developing a project that will see a large new fused glass artwork installed into the ruined chapel at RSPB Minsmere. This in turn will launch a programme of events inspired both by the beauty and the vulnerability of the amazing wildlife surrounding it. The piece will be called A Wing And A Prayer.
Much of her work, though by no means all, involves being fired in a kiln. Arabella’s studio in Suffolk houses a two meter long kiln and is well worth a visit. Here you can often see work in progress as well as finished pieces and many smaller example pieces to give you an idea of what is possible.
In addition to her creative practise Arabella runs kiln-formed glass courses in her studio. So you too can come and discover the magic. These are open to all levels of experience (from none to plenty).
