Handmade unique glass bead jewellery. Annie hand makes each of the glass beads she uses in her contemporary jewellery using the 14th century Venetian techniques of flameworking (sometimes called lampworking). Annie’s inspiration comes from the natural world, particularly the sea, beach and the Downs near Brighton.
Inspired by the natural world, particularly the sea, beach and the Downs near Brighton. Every piece of jewellery Annie creates from her handmade beads is unique. Themes and ideas grow, are repeated and developed, but every finished piece is slightly different.

Sussex Guild member Sue Tinkler's work is influenced by our natural and industrial heritage, including abstract textures created by nature reclaiming and the evidence of how industry influences the natural landscape. Sue creates inspiring designs that include winter trees, ploughed fields, farm architecture, hedgerows, woodlands and chalk streams.
Sue is influenced by our natural and industrial heritage, including abstract textures created by nature reclaiming and the evidence of how industry influences the natural landscape. She creates flat artworks by fusing together sheet, granulated and powdered glass in a kiln, often numerous times to achieve desired effects. ‘Drop vessels’ are then created by slowly reheating and allowing the glass to ‘sag’ to form their final shape followed by painstaking cold working.
Deborah Timperley - The Sussex Guild #thesussexguild With over 20 years specialising in glass casting Deborah has become renowned for creating beautiful glass sculptures and bowls. Alongside my cast work I also make fused glass – bowls, mirrors, panels. I also teach glass fusing courses at my workshop. #glasssculpture #glassart #castglasssculpture #deborahtimperley

Fleur Grenier  Hand blown glass and pewter
Fleur Grenier | The Sussex Guild #thesussexguild Fleur’s designs are distinctively sculptural, with movement and fluidity the chief influences. Both elements are captured by combining pewter with hand-blown glass. Fleur demonstrates how the two materials complement each other perfectly. Her current range emerges from a series of drawings of molten lava. The pewter swirls and moves, while the glass often looks as if it is flowing over the pewter. #fleurgrenier #glassartist #glassculpture
Elizabeth Welch | The Sussex Guild #thesussexguild Elizabeth’s work is inspired by the natural world. In her elegant and colourful menageries, each creature has its own quirky character. On the basis of reference photos from research trips and drawings of initial ideas, she makes her pieces entirely by hand, using an oxygen and propane torch, a few tools, and coloured borosilicate glass. #glassart #elizabethwelch

Katrina Beattie - Glass
Katrina's exclusive hand-blown glass incorporates copper wire inclusions that trap air, creating bubbles and casting refractive light. Her kiln formed glass displays matrixes of accurately placed holes or bubbles with extreme precision and regularity.
Deborah Timperley - Glass
Over the last 2 decades I have explored many ways of working with glass and different imagery. I’m focusing more now on cast glass. The glass sculptures ‘Constructed walls’ explore the beauty of stone bridges, harbour walls, dry stone walling and rocky outcrops. Alongside my cast work I also make fused glass – bowls, mirrors, panels – it’s a very flexible method.
