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 taking part in Cambridge Open Studios this July but if you particularly want to see my fused glass just email or phone me to make sure that I am here. You are welcome at any time, just excuse the mess!
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.
