Colette Halstead Glass - Lancashire

Kiln fused glass & jewellery

 

Glass artist Colette Halstead uses traditional techniques of kiln fused glass to produce her beautiful lamps, mirrors, wall panels, vessels, and jewellery. Colette’s glass can be found in galleries throughout the UK. Colette discovered the potential of glass in 2004 after graduating with a BA (hons.) in Fine Art Printmaking and has taught kiln fused and stained glass since 2007.

Inspired by British skylines, Colette Halstead uses kiln fused techniques to produce her unique landscapes in glass. Also a fine art printmaker, Colette captures the mood and atmosphere of each piece of glass. Colette uses leaves taken from the landscapes and introduces them into each of her pieces using unique methods developed by herself.

Cow parsley, cleavers, organic anise, hawthorn, ivy, rose, astilbe, grasses and others mark their organic shadowy silhouettes in the kiln glass, capturing permanent memories of their once leafy existence. Leaves are gathered from different locations in the picturesque county Lancashire, from the lanes Over Wyre to the edge of Tolkien’s Bowland. Each piece is as unique as the leaves captured within it.
