Karen Lilley – Blown and kiln-cast Glass

Karen is a glassmaker, she started her journey into glass by studying architectural glass at Queens Road School of Art in Bristol.

Since then she has taken a part-time course in glass craft and a number of master classes to learn a range of glass making techniques from hot, furnace glass, casting, fusing, flame-working and cold-working glass.  Part of Karen’s love of glass is that she is always learning and developing new ideas to bring to her glass.

Karen is currently making a range of plates, bowls and vessels in her Bristol studio, fusing glass, exploring crackle techniques, stripes and irridescent patterns.  She also enjoys the magic of working with hot glass and hires a hot shop to blow glass, making paperweights and baubles.

Karen’s latest work is on permanent display at the Cotswold Craftsmen’s Gallery in Nailsworth. Commissions Welcome
