Pippa’s glasswork is varied, from the magical world of her glass book and its related curiosities, to glass bowls and panels. Thorough research and drawings develop into sensitive work with careful consideration to contextual needs.
The inspirational themes of her work show printing, hand-painting and etching techniques:
The Magic Lantern Society created this mesmerising YouTube video from my projections of my spinning glass slides. I presented this at a recent Magic Lantern Society meeting. I will also be presenting my glasswork for International Women’s Day and this YouTube video will be included to promote Adult Learning Lewisham where I am a tutor. They offer a fantastic selection of glasswork courses currently online.

‘Tales from the Glass Forest’
Inspired by text, the glass pages create a book which urges you to peer into and beyond. Look closely, there are creatures lurking in the undergrowth of the ‘Glass Forest.’
Leaves of box, bay, yew and citrus fruits entwine to create a gnarled and twisted topiary tree.
A garden for plants used in cancer-fighting drugs. May Apple, Purple Meadow Rue, Happy Tree, Rosie Periwinkle and Pacific Yew.

In 2006 Pippa achieved the first prize in the ‘Lankelly Chase Foundation’ Award.
