Amanda Simmons





I make kiln formed glass vessels, playing with gravity in the kiln. Manipulating mass, heat, colour and time I aim to create complex, elusive work that has intense colour and pattern which reacts to the light it is placed in. I finish my pieces using many cold working processes to shape and mark the glass including sandblasting, hand lapping, diamond point and wheel cameo engraving. I am currently producing work inspired by two residencies at Lyth Arts Centre in Caithness. Here I investigated the Flow Country which is the largest area of blanket bog in the world. And as ever birds fly through my work as I live with them in the studio and my rural setting.
