Glass Work by Linda Norris
I have worked for 30 years as a landscape painter and began working with glass 6 years ago. My work in glass is extending my enquiry in unexpected ways. I have no formal education in glass work, but have attended several masterclasses, one with Jeremy Lepisto, and, most recently, with Michael Rogers. I live and work in a rural area of West Wales.
I first came to glass 6 years ago with a painter’s desire to move beyond paint. Since then I have become drawn to explore the myriad possibilities that glass offers as a medium to allow me to make work with a conceptual content, and work that moves in a poetic space between word and object.
Like my painting, my work with glass is very much underpinned by a fascination with the landscape, both as a visual and a metaphorical stimulus.
