Fragile Shore

Helen Smith, artist and maker in glass, print and stitch

My work is informed by the beautiful light, the colours and the calm open expanse of the estuary on which I live. I am fascinated by the interplay of light and texture in the landscape, and the contrasts to be found at the boundaries of water, land and sky.

Whilst I have more recently been working with glass, I have a long standing love of textiles and the stitched mark. My current practice combines elements of kiln formed glass with found objects, printmaking and stitch.
