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 in July, as we hope to get to Iceland in the Summer. However my work will be in Over Gallery, 25 High Street, Over CB24 5NB. See the advertisement in the Open Studios booklet. I hope to be there at least one of the weekends, depending on our travel dates.
I will be taking part in an exhibition at Bow House in Barnet in mid September, Nearer the time see johnbrown-sculptor.co.uk for more details. It is a beautiful house and gallery owned by John Brown the sculptor.
If you want to come and see me at another time, please email or telephone me on 01954 230324.
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.
