I use unwanted glass and fuse it!                            

Welcome to used & fused. I am a recycled glass designer/maker.

My objective is to use recycled materials, reclaimed glass from houses, shed windows, greenhouses, old inserts of picture frames & shattered car windows and recycled timber.

Using the kiln forming technique it is possible to infuse other materials within the glass –  for this, I also recycle what is around me; stripping down electrical wire, old brass curtain rings, tomato puree tubes & even freshly picked lavender!

Each piece of work is kiln fired to create an individual & subtle bespoke design as I prefer the glass to speak for itself, my creations range from wedding gifts, christening gifts, corporate awards, large wall hangings, framed artwork, bowls & coasters to mini hangers, pendants & cards. I particularly love the aspect of not knowing exactly how each piece is going to look after it has been fired.
I have been fortunate to find a local window company who support my ethos and supply me with their unwanted glass, along with family & friends. (plus the odd skip or two!)

My work is very much inspired by my love of flowers, nature & texture.
