Clear Glass Bowl ‘Hoar Frost’ by Teresa Chlapowski

Finely crafted clear glass bowl with bags of character, this piece is an exploration of the sculptural form of winter trees.

Kiln-carved art glass is made from 2cm thick float glass, which gives the edges a wonderful green tint.

The ‘branches’ of the piece are made using thick ceramic fibre that is embossed onto the float glass to give a pronounced 3D effect.

The ‘hoar frost’ effect on the branches is produced by sandblasting and delivers depth and interest to the textured piece.

The perfect piece to put somewhere with a white or pale background.

Clear Glass Bowl – Artist

Teresa Chlapowski Glass Artist. Teresa is a mixed media artist working with photography, digital art, glass-influenced cyanotype prints, and both sculptural and functional glass.

From her studio in Harrow, she uses sand casting and fusing glass techniques and combines her glass work, with painting, photography, and ceramics to full effect.

She uses photography to document her artistic journey and to uncover inspiration in the wooded, autumnal undergrowth, ancient sand drifts by pitted cliffs, or clouds reflected in puddles.

Teresa began her artistic journey with knitwear, and spent many years designing, before taking classes in ceramics, sculpture, and glass at the University of Hertfordshire over the course of many years.

Glass was the medium that grabbed hold of her soul, and she knew this was the medium through which she could best express her worldview. She fell in love with its mysterious alchemical properties; what was once a flowing hot river became a solid form that makes light dance to its tune.

Teresa’s figurative sculptural work provides glimmers and glints of the human form. A mystery wrapped inside an enigma, that is both intriguing and revealing at one and the same time.

Her fused glass panels are influenced by her time as a textile artist, with organised lines in a riotous kaleidoscope of colours.
Teresa has continued to evolve her practice and has taken master classes with Colin Reid and Max Jacquard.

She has sand cast glass at the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham and now sand casts with Jon Lewis and Ewa Warzyniak at Parndon Mill, Harlow, Essex.
