Fused Glass Artist and Children's Writer
For the last few years I've immersed myself in the joy, delight and creative potential of the wonderful medium of glass. I use fusing techniques to manipulate shadows and reflections and to exploit the amazing palette of colours that glass offers.
I'm always experimenting with new ideas and I love commissions, they stretch my skills and imagination. I have been commissioned to make windows, internal and external door panels, wall lights and tiles for bathrooms and kitchens.
I will not be opening my studio during July this year. Instead my work will be at Over Gallery along with other exhibitors, see their advertisement in the COS booklet. I too will be at Over Gallery on Saturday afternoons during July, excluding the first weekend. Also my wall pictures of the fens will be at the Stained Glass Museum in Ely from 8 June to the end of July.
Children's books: I started writing and illustrating children's books in the late 60's. I used just my first name Althea. We formed the publishing company Dinosaur Publications, named after my main character, Desmond the Dinosaur.
