Hi, I’m Andrea – the owner and glass artist here at Dragon Art Glass. Welcome to my glassy corner of the internet.
A bit about me – I adore working in glass. I find the multitude of colours and many different techniques used to produce my glass items always inspire me, and ensure that I am constantly learning something new and improving my technique.
Whether I am working with sheets of glass – which I cut to shape and size; rods of glass – which I melt and manipulate; glass powders or enamels I am in my element (which for someone that studied Chemistry is really quite exciting!).
I love the challenge that glass as a medium presents and feel privileged to be able to do the job I love and hopefully brighten someones day as a bonus.
Please be aware that Dragon Art Glass is a small, one person business. If you’ve messaged me through my website and I haven’t replied instantly, then it’s probably because I’m not online. I will make every attempt to get back to you as soon as possible. Though please feel free to telephone if you’d prefer (or think I’ve forgotten about you). I would also like to add that sometimes, for whatever reason, emails go to spam folders – please check your spam folder too if you haven’t heard from me after a few days as I do make every effort to get back to people. Thank you!
My work process
Currently, the majority of my work begins life as sheets of glass, which are cut to shape and size, and then either go through at least one kiln process, or are turned into stained glass panels and suncatchers. I make items with both the leaded style (like church windows), and the Tiffany style (often suncatchers and smaller panels) of stained glass work. I frequently add flame worked glass embellishments to my fused pieces, and can occasionally be coerced to make jewellery from my beads.
Just about everything I make starts out as a drawing in one form or another (though I must admit, the drawings quite often take the form of quick sketches of ideas – drawn in felt pen on my light table, traced onto the glass, then wiped off the light table when the piece is complete).
