Wendy Newhofer Glass began her career with an Art Foundation course. It was there she first encountered kiln-formed glass and was immediately captivated by the process.

The next few years were spent studying for a part-time Fine Arts degree before deciding to concentrate on glass art. A 3D glass course in London over three years gave her the skills and experience to set up a studio at her home in Oxford.

Wendy Newhofer Glass makes expressive glass pieces which have a ‘painterly’ quality to them. She is able to ‘draw’ within the glass and create a palette of subtle colours. She achieves this by including precious metal leaf and wire in her designs. The glass is then fired in the kiln to create her stunning artworks. Her love of pattern informs her work. In addition, natural forms have been a strong influence in her work.

Wendy Newhofer Glass is a member of the Contemporary Glass Society and Just Glass and regularly shows work in their exhibitions. She has also taken part in the Oxfordshire Artweek’s open studios for thirteen years and has exhibited nationally.
