Susan Kinley glass is inspired by archaeology, ideas and experiences.

Susan has an established practice as an artist and maker, with a studio based near Falmouth, in Cornwall. Her work combines different processes and materials, including glass, metals and enamels. Her artwork is informed by visual research at archaeological sites throughout the UK, from the Isles of Scilly to the Orkneys. Susan Kinley glass is widely exhibited in the UK and across the globe. She has awards from Arts Council England, Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, the David Cantor Memorial Fund, Cultivator Cornwall and Marshwood Applied Arts.

She works to commission for individuals and on public installations, with past projects including the British Embassy in Dublin, the Met Office, Exeter, and Penlee House Art Gallery & Museum, Penzance.

In 2019 Susan was selected to show a large scale glass wall installation at the prestigious Collect Open, part of the International Art Fair for Modern Craft and Design at Saatchi Gallery.

Artist Statement

“My wall panels and installations are overlays of places, ideas and experiences, fused together in unexpected ways. Each work tells a visual story of memory, visits to particular wild places and changes across days, months, and centuries.”
