A new artist for Design@HEART, Lucinda Dransfield works in fused and stained glass:
I am a Leeds based designer maker working in fused, leaded and copper foiled stained glass from my local studio. My background in 3D Design (BA Hons) and Fine Jewellery (City & Guilds) compliments my studies and work in the various glass techniques I use. Much of my work is influenced by a lifelong passion for wildlife and nature, inspiration comes from observing colour, light, form, pattern and texture. As a keen photographer, I often reference my own images of seascapes, landscapes and wildlife, before translating the subject into glass. Powders, frits, stained glass and traditional stained-glass painting are used, each texture and colour carefully chosen to compliment the subject and create a well-balanced finished piece.
