JKL Glass Art

Julia Kellaway creates glass art using traditional and modern stained glass techniques of lead, copper-foiling, and glass fusing. Her work is enhanced with kiln-fired paint, which enshrines hand painted images onto the glass.

Glass Art with Julia Kellaway / Copper Foiling

Glass Art with Julia Kellaway / Copper Foiling | Having removed my glass from the kiln, I inspect each piece as I carefully lift it off the kiln shelf. This is not because I am worried about dropping it! It’s about now that I amaze myself with how blasé I can be about handling something fragile that I have spent an age cutting, grinding

Glass Art with Julia Kellaway / Experimenting with the Alchemy that is Glass Fusing

When I emerge from the workshop with my design a mass of shiny different coloured glass, it reminds me of a kaleidoscope I had when I was young. It is my not quite blank canvas awaiting the detail I envisaged in my original drawing, which at this point, seems a distant memory!
