Sue King

Sue King is inspired by colour & light. She designs and creates vibrant kiln-formed glass for residential and commercial interior projects, including specialising in healthcare commissions. Her work also includes smaller items such as hanging panels and tableware using a contemporary style and colour palettes.

Originally qualifying with BA Interior Design. Sue worked for various hotel design practices, before running her own design consultancy for many years. She studied Glass with Architecture/Fine Art at Central St Martins College of Art & Design in 2002.

All of Sue’s work is imbued with a passion for colour, taking inspiration from artists, nature and pattern and her own photography/artwork. She has developed a fluid technique of working in a painterly style whereby coloured glass is cut freehand, overlaid onto clear glass and then fired at temperatures of around 810 degrees to fuse together. Her designs are all unique and one off pieces.

Sue King’s commissions are developed closely with clients using hand drawn watercolour sketches that are then translated into glass. This helps her clients to see a visual representation of their vision and ideas so they are fully involved throughout the commission process.

Sue enjoys exploring how glass interacts with light and often incorporates textural markings to bring out these qualities. Glass shows its best qualities when displayed in natural light, which then throws beautiful colour shadow washes into the surrounding space.

Larger commissions include panels for healthcare projects, as well as contemporary stylish sculptures for a Saudi Arabian hotel, panels for Molton Brown in New York and many glass installations for private homes.

Chris Wood

Chris Wood’s medium is light. She uses a range of high and low-tech optical materials to harness patterns of light that suggest ephemeral glimpsed moments in the natural world.

Her sculptures are simple arrangements creating kinetic patterns in response to the environments in which they are placed. Her work brings a wistful romanticism to a minimalist aesthetic. Chris Wood orders the accidental and makes us reflect on the experience of seeing.

After studying Furniture Design at Middlesex University in the mid 1980s. She then went on to study glass at the Royal College of Art, where she worked on architectural scale projects dealing with light and space.

Chris Wood produces innovative installations for gallery exhibition. She has shown extensively throughout the UK and internationally. Her work is represented in a number of private collections as well as the Shanghai Museum of Glass.

She also produces work to commission and has created works for Fendi Fashion House, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Premier Inn Hotel and a Scandinavian cruise ship. Chris is currently working on her largest project to date in Taiwan.
